In my artistic work, the encaustic work is always present. It is one of the most sophisticated, passionate and older technique I know. It allows me, at the same time, to use and combine materials which are simple and easy to get. I use many elements, apparently with no control, such as wax and fire. I like this surprise blow, of astonishment for expected outcome, even venturesome. When processing an idea, it never ends in the original stroke. Fire and time change everything, that is why I like to work on topics that make me think of what would be the fate of things when nobody uses them anymore, when they are only part of the past... memories of things that lead to other things.
