Delphine Grandvaux
"Safe Harbor III", Handmade Metal Mesh and Green Wool Pendant Mural Sculpture

2020

$2,421.85

About

An airy meshwork of aesthetic shapes combining with felted green wool, this sensual sculpture named « Safe harbor III» is created and entirely handmade from black annealed iron wire and felting wool by artist Delphine Grandvaux. The artist says: "happiness sometimes needs gentleness and silence." Created with inspiration by the bird's nest, this artwork symbolizes a protective, reassuring place, where our thoughts can be expressed with confidence; a "refuge" to happiness, which we have recourse to in a difficult moment or situation. This work can be hung on the ceiling with a hook. The mesh ball sitting in the central volume of this work can be removed from its shell. Delphine Grandvaux is a French sculptor. Motivated by her desire to create light and airy artworks, she developed a unique artistic approach, based on a similar technique of mesh from the metal wire as Ruth Asawa, although in a more dynamic way. In the meshworks of Delphine Grandvaux, the metallic threads, sometimes associated with other light materials like wood, wool, etc., seem to be tamed by the power of her technique and by her freedom of imagination. They transform themselves under the hands of the artist into voluminous organic and dynamic forms, fine and refined, with fluid movements inside as well as outside the work. Playing with light and shadow, the transparent or semi-transparent forms created by the artist are truly evocative of poetry, delicacy, and elegance.
