"Tout se tend vers un unique but,
plonger corps et âme vers cet autre que nous désirons tellement."
"L'absorber, l'engloutir, s'en pénétrer tout en le pénétrant pour
mieux exploser de mille feux nos particules élémentaires."
The initial model of this sculpture was
created on a 3d modeling software. I inspired myself from another
smaller sculpture called
“The Kiss”. I wanted to show a man a bit shy and withdrawn, unsure
of how to respond to his female lover’s passionate enthusiasm.
The digital file was then used to drive a 3d printer to produce a
plaster prototype of the sculpture. I made a silicon rubber mould from
this prototype and used it to make a plasticine duplicate.
This plasticine figure served as a blank which I could easily alter,
modify and refine until I was satisfied with the sculpture. I then
spray painted several layers of automotive primer to smooth out the
surface, fill small cracks and defects. I then made a final silicon
mould to produce a number of wax replicates for the foundry.
