The sculpture

Sculpture is one of the most diverse, fascinating and varied art forms in Western art. From the gigantic sculpted pieces of ancient Greece to the abstract sculptures of contemporary art, from the figurines of prehistoric civilizations to the kinetic sculptures of the 20th century, this art is as diverse as it is intriguing. 4

Sculptural art began in the Upper Paleolithic with a small figure known as the Löwenmensch. It is considered to be over 40,000 years old. Sculpture can be made with most 3D modular materials. Here are the four main procedures of this art over the centuries: rock cutting, wood carving, metal sculpture casting and ceramic modulation.

Bronze sculpture

To know everything about bronze sculpture

Antique or contemporary, bronze sculpture fascinates the observer. It is one of the few art mediums whose basic techniques have not changed over time.

A little history…

The technique of making a model sculpture in clay, plaster or wax before pouring the bronze into a mold dates back as far as the third millennium BC. Since ancient times, many sculpting artists have made bronze statues of different sizes. Often they represented heroic warriors (full-length or bust), characters from mythology, sometimes accompanied by an animal (horse, dog, bird, etc.).

La série des Ménines plates reprend les trois Ménines réalisées précédemment, la Ménine classique, la Ménine en haillon, la Ménine baroque, avec comme différence notoire qu’elles ont été aplaties. Ce qu’elles ont perdues en volume elles l’ont gagnées en taille. En effet des socles les portent plus haut. Ces socles, en bronze comme les sculptures elles-mêmes, sont réalisés à partir de l’empreinte d’une brique. La brique, matériau non noble, porte les Ménines aplaties ! Le propos est dur mais le lien plastique est fort. Les Ménines originales ont été réalisées en feuille de terre puis cuite. La brique, comme chacun le sait est aussi de la terre cuite. On peut aussi dire que la brique, forme simple et mainte fois produite dans le monde porte une Ménine aux formes particulières.
