Pauline's comment

Comments by the artist SAK: "I love sculpture in bronze. I started out by sculpting a fantasy and somewhat baroque world, always in relation with the anatomy of the human body. The human being remains, still today, at the origins of all my creations. I want to understand the physical complexities and express them through a more abstract and subjective approach. To start, I create a sculpture in classic fashion and then through the transformation of this piece, by crushing it, stretching it, through the absence or addition of matter, a new sculpture is born: the deconstruction of the objects makes for its rebirth. The initial conception of the classic piece requires a certain rigour, attention and meticulousness that I wish to then liberate thanks to the body language and the spontaneity of movement. On top of that, I like to take into account the role of the random factor in the piece. In effect, all bronze sculptures need a wax copy and it's that wax that I transform and play with: the wax's reaction to the heat as well as the water is a direct participant in these new creations. Finally, with the patina, I begin to discover the notion of colour in bronze sculpture. The colour's freedom highlights and enriches the rigour and technical constraints of the initial creation. My sculptures need time and a slow maturing.” SAK
