This collection of animal sculptures offers games of shadows: According to the light sources, different illustrations appear on the wall generated by the wire structures, providing an evolutionary spectacle that does not fail to amaze both children and adults. If you point a light beam towards the animal (a flashlight for example) by making a lateral movement, horizontal or circular, the shadow of it seems to come alive!
Wire is a raw material that I handle with affection to try to transcend it and bring it a form of purity. After a first step in pencil work during which I study my inspiration subjects from every angle, I choose the essential features and draws them in wire in space, translating volumes into lines. Lines, patiently purified as if to erase the hand of Man and pay homage, humbly, to the beauties of nature. I am looking for softness in my metal features; a state of innocence close to the world of childhood. The gaze of these animals with aerial structures, is often the least naturalistic part closer to the human eye and in this anthropomorphic illustrations of tales and fables. When I finish an animal portrait, I have the feeling that it becomes autonomous, that it has its own life. This emotion is reinforced when shadows come alive with light.
It is recommended not to expose this sculpture to moisture as the annealed wire is rough and may rust. Sculpture exclusively reserved for decoration, to keep out of reach of the youngest. To hang a single tip is enough (provided) Designed by hand, each piece is unique and may be subject to slight variations in shape and therefore dimensions.
