Sylvain Subervie’s Inspiration & Craft
Sylvain designed his first collection of furniture in 1995. By bringing together the elements of metals, iron and rock crystal, the artist embarked on a journey of self-discovery, exploring the balance of power between him and the natural minerals wrought by his own hand. In his nature-focused works, the artist surrenders to the pure beauty of his materials while equally endeavouring to embellish everything he touches. The act of crafting his sculptures is a call to grace and to honour the true meaning and value of life. His sculptures, being moulded from natural resources, also explore how art can come from anything with the right skill and eye.
Represented by Marcilhac Gallery in Paris, France, Sylvain has participated in many international art fairs, including La Biennale of Paris, The Salon NYC, Art Cologne, Art Basel Miami, and Brafa. The artist has rubbed shoulders with Art Deco masters such as Printz, Prouve and Giacometti, and continues to create monumental sculptural works.
