Philippe Pallafray
Athabasca

2019

$20,000

About

A pillar of stainless steel is coated white in this minimalist outdoor sculpture by Philippe Pallafray. The sculpture is designed with jagged polished cracks in the steel that glint in the sunlight. The artist ascribed meaning to reflected light by quoting Leonard Cohen: “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Titled Athabasca the work brings to mind a geological sample of ice. This work is available by commission requiring 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. It is number 2 in an edition of 9. Philippe Pallafray is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec. He worked for 15 years in fine arts in France before immigrating to Canada. In 2005, he established a studio on Île d'Orléans, Québec. Pallafray integrates polished stainless steel with natural and man-made materials to create provocative indoor and outdoor sculptures. Pallafray has exhibited in the US, France and Canada at the John B. Aird Gallery, the Artist Project Toronto, Alliance Française de Toronto and the McMichael Canadian Collection. In 2016, he was artist-in-residence at Saint-Georges de Beauce, where he was commissioned to create the sculpture Aquagraphie. Pallafray’s work is held in private and public collections in North America and France.
