CRITICAL REVIEW


        The elements of continuity rely on the taste for the ironical recovery of signs and symbols that are physically and morally worn-out. This attitude creates new contexts and new forms of expressions. He uses detachedly Egyptian hieroglyphs, like an allusion to the Pharaoh funerary art, and ensure them new senses. He mocks at the cloning aberrations and makes out of the Dolly sheep a veritable kitsch star. He demythologizes the nude through excessively sexy solicitations and alludes to collage and gestures.
