- a form of acute insanity experienced by an alcoholic

Loss of spacial reference, incoherent speech, mental confusion, troubled visions etc… it is the pathology of the artist with or without alcohol

Explaining my work to you is so incoherent that it seems useless.

A moment of clarity nevertheless

4 basic elements
The light bulb for its shape and its timelessness
The bottle for its shape and also because I practice it
The wind for I once was a sailor
The shadow, for the immaterial, and because it surrounds me daily

I take these 4 elements, I gather them together in a chosen space, and turn them into a work of art, it is that simple

I take the 10 inch high orange stool, 58 seconds of dead calm and I feel good, tells you the former sailor.
