The artist reconstructs the images of real life in his works, while exploring the rhythm of time passing in his metropolis. She installs in her canvas the characters she selects at random from among her countless photographs. From an imaginary angle, these characters simply walk with a natural rhythm, in an abstract urban space. His way of piling them up embodies the way of seeing and being in a metropolis while creating maps of lives.
