Through direct or indirect carving I seek to bring out the expression of the material. My gesture aims to cause the accidents that will guide my future path. The mechanical or chemical action will reveal the common intentions of zinc and my hands guided by the brain. The writing then arises from spontaneity and the unexpected, in perpetual research.
