Philippe Pallafray
Aquagraphie V3

2020

$26,000

About

A rectangular, steel outdoor sculpture in black is divided in parts, like a puzzle, the edges polished and reflective. This eight foot upright is mirrored in three reflective steel puddle shapes installed at its base. Inspired by the graphic design of river maps, the sculpture charts a course of the line written on the earth by the river, and reflection in steel within the natural environment. 14" x 52" steel base can be bolt into concrete or ground. Additional 4 polished steel water elements vary in size and are inserted into ground around the sculpture. Philippe Pallafray is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and of the Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec. Born in France, he emigrated to Canada ten years ago and currently lives on Ile d’Orléans, Québec. He uses steel and stainless steel that he cuts, shapes, folds, and welds. Pallafray likes to use geometric and curved forms in his sculptures to tame and play with light. His sculptures have been exhibited in Canada and the United States, both as part of group and solo exhibitions. They are also part of public and private collections in Canada, France, and the United States. In 2016 he was artist-in-residence in Saint-Georges de Beauce, Québec, to create the sculpture Aquagraphie for Veilleux Park.
