The bird is a prominent theme in his work. Not so much the image of the animal, but the image of the mediator between heaven and earth. From the press: "In the painting of S.V. figuration and non-figuration are closely intertwined. They interpret the dual aspect of his oeuvre: namely, a strange lyricism on the one hand, and an oppressive tragedy on the other. Multicolored touches and surfaces fill the canvas" and "The artist takes his inspiration from the depths of the imagination and gives shape to the mystery: indefinable phantom-like creatures and a strange pollinator with sphinxes, phoenixes, strange bird-like creatures sprout from his creative mind." His collages were enhanced with drawings, with colors and words and in particular with fragments of poems by Joseph Noiret. Designed in 1050, together with C. Dotremont, a series of clay and peat shapes, Les Boues. His first ceramics were created in 1960, then he focused on sculpture: woodcarving in 1972, stone sculptures in 1977.
