I had great pleasure in creating this joyful sculpture which has such a strong presence. You can see it now "in real life" at the Oeil du Prince Gallery in Biarritz and at the Gilbert Dufois Gallery in Senlis.
The first bronze was produced for the "Sculptures en Liberté" exhibition organized jointly by the Val d'Oise Archaeological Museum and the Musée de l’Outil (the Tool Museum). The sculpture therefore spent the entire summer of 2020 on the lawns of the remarkable garden of the Musée de l’Outil in the Wit Dit Joli Village. It can be displayed on a bronze...
A small sculpture to hold in the hand! (Actually it was a project for a much larger sculpture). I like to show, in the manner of Giacometti, that the presence of a sculpture is not due to its format but to its emotional charge.
To the Greeks, the owl symbolizes philosophy. She sees in the night. A concept that is very useful in the current period ... A young girl wonders and reflects in interaction with this beautiful animal.
Sculpture presented in bronze for the first time during the "VARIATIONS" exhibition at the Gilbert Dufois gallery. This revival of the elephant with the bird will find its place in any garden. I can envisage a corten steel plinth suitable for any chosen location. Beautiful gray patina with lighter backgrounds.
An image of a woman whose neck is encircled by rings which represent social pressure. She transcends the latter by displaying a proud and elegant posture.
A large bronze currently on display until November 2020 in the remarkable garden of the Musée de l'outil (Tool Museum) in the Val d'Oise.

I finished this sculpture on Christmas Day 2019 and at first I called it Happy Christmas, imagining the bear cub offering the fish as gifts!
Now I prefer Back from Fishing, which I feel is more appropriate to the subject.
Brown patina, lighter background with green glints for the fish.
