Gilles Candelier


Gradiously and for a long time, Gilles Candelier's sculpture work has turned to a search for evocations such as: lightness, often unstable balance, appearance of fragility, sometimes partial translucent. A sought -after paradox of a metal that surprises us: copper.

In almost all its work appears a character: woman, man, child, sometimes an animal. No doubt desire to always keep a presence of "living being". Often a "pure geometry" is associated with it: sphere, right, rectangle, square ... as a kind of unchanging, perfect and stable complementary presence.

The attitudes are studied with care to translate and make rhythms, gestures, the gestures, efforts in the manner of a mime which analyzes them and makes them expressive. On the service of these guidelines, copper metals reveal their large transformation capacity: from welding to hammering, cuts to shears, patinas, colors to colors the flame and the laying of gold leaves.
