In these series, he places himself opposite the search of the moment , by focusing on the contrary to build theatralised and frozen pictures just like paintings, to reveal a world of doubt and poetry.

This work is composed of several short « stories » each showing a different approach to the representation of the same questioning on the issue of happiness, waiting or to the time.

While striving to offer several further readings, these sceneries endeavour to make the theme in a poetic angle of dreams and desires

In these stories, the characters are, for example, successively staged in the wobbly universes of cardboard, made anonymous in the canvas of a daily routine, as well as represented as a woman / child lost between the dreams of « grown woman » from childhood and « grown woman » actually became.
