"The bench has always been central to the iconographic imagination of each of us, from the couple lovingly hugging in a public park with her puppy lifting his paw as a hello, the homeless to the elderly. Real or imagined memories would not exist without this vital character that is the bench.

Legs are often the most beautiful part of a bench but they do not represent the primary figure in the public imagination, as they are overlooked and hidden. Yet they are on their own, carriers and supporters of our joys and sorrows. They symbolize strength, durability and the traces of time passing."

This series have a joyful and playful naïvity which takes on a lovely feel for children's imagination and one can also read them in a way where they create a sense of shift and transportation to society.
