All curves, the work evokes here a recumbent body, intimacy,
interiority and sweetness, hence the title "sleeper" (or sleeper); the
interior space, the recollection, but also the movement, the vitality
... A calm and yet dynamic work, very ZEN! The artist does not seek here
to represent the morphology of people (which has already been done),
but to make perceptible the energy that emerges from a moment, grasped
in the material. The Sleeper is part
of the work done on the theme of dance, which resulted in 6 different bronze sculptures.
This sculpture, of simple and pure appearance, calls for a great
technicality and a lot of delicacy, for its realization in bronze, in
particular because of its interior space (said "undercut"). An unusual
horizontal format but very practical to place in an interior (niche,
shelf, desk, window sill). Let's not forget the Turquoise patina,
marbled with black veins and water green, absolutely unique!
