One day I realised that my paintings were all about rather empty space, calm and structure, while my real life at the time was totally chaotic, overwhelming and very emotional... I understood that thought of being in control of my life was a total illusion... So I decided to ajust my work to the circumstances of my life and begun to explore how the most crowded and overwhelmed space could look like !

The series Life Forms came out of this experimentation, but the paintings also talked about the marvel and mystery of (litterally) giving life. This life that developped in my body when I was pregnant in an unstopable movement of the Desire-to-take-a-form.

As I continued on this series I allowed breathing spaces within the crowded space full of the self-generating invading funny little shapes, a peep into the underlying silence behind all experiences, would it be the most intense one.
