2°) More informations on these sculptures:
This sculpture series was created in 1995
These fellow travellers are the logical extension of “the lovely little faces“. The emphasis is always placed on the character’s personality. A body, arms and legs are added in a summary manner, but in order to convey a general attitude.
It’s a disillusioned vision of existence. Whether they are alone or in a couple, these human beings seem to be overwhelmed by what’s happening to them… In principle, we are all destined to travel alongside them for awhile.
Several sculptures in this series are made of bronze. You’ll find more explanations about this technique on the page “Dances and other devilries“. How are bronzes made ? What is the percentage of copper in a bronze ? How many castings can be made from an original ?
