Maurice’s studies concentrated on sculpting. He realised that what occurred prior to the completion of the work was of equal importance as the final piece itself. Subsequently, he started carrying out short experiments in front of a video camera; something that soon became close to what is called performance art. Subsequently his work evolved into actual performances, involving setting up and carrying out "actions" that bear aesthetic results in front of an audience.

Although his work is performative, he still considers himself to have a sculptural attitude - constructing and deconstructing whilst having some kind of interaction with an audience (or not). "Naturally, one’s performance art is ordered in a chronological manner, yet the viewer is not aware of this during a performance."
