When chance and nature intertwine...

Pareidolia: Phenomenon consisting in recognizing forms in various visual or auditory things.

We find this approach in mediums who scrutinize coffee grounds to see the future emerge.

Also at Rorschach who developed the famous psychological inkblot test.

As children, we were looking for characters hidden in the rockeries of Mont Coudon in Toulon, we found that these accidental faces emanated a certain offbeat poetry, finding us in this silent universe.

Being sometimes the only one to visualize them, one day I stuck a tracing paper on the bay window of the living room of the family house and I drew the outline. It then became completely obvious to others.

In doing so, our characters ended up having names, and the interest of building up a collection obsessed me. The first images were very gimmicky, more stunning than beautiful, and over the years they have become more accurate. 
Faced with the growing number of conquests, it was necessary to be more demanding on the quality of the subjects. Faced with the difficulty of defining my work, I chose “Random Natural Art”. Chance and nature are the artisans. 
The beauty of chance, the very one that has perhaps always influenced graphic art: primitive, classic, modern, comics, abstract. 
And then wondering if the best is yet to come; if we will come across THE photo...
