Artist Statement

These three images are an excerpt from a larger work entitled “Cryogenics”.
I used ice to stop the deterioration of the plants, flowers and small insects in my garden.
In the ice everything has thus remained unchanged, as if by freezing it has managed to freeze time.
I then wanted to freeze part of my family album.
To circumvent the unfair spending of time on my loved ones, on my family, on my memories.

“this is my little ice age ….
until the heat comes to melt we will remain like this ”

What are your “Treasured moments” & how do you connect it to your work?

Precious are the moments I spent with my family, the photos remember those happy moments.
the act of freezing something already frozen with photography means being attached to that moment and trying not to forget it, despite
Time passes inexorably.
