Philippe Pallafray
Wormhole

2018

$16,000

About

A large cast aluminum ring, polished and reflective on the inside and textured on its exterior elegantly frames the indoor space. Created by Philippe Pallafray and titled "Wormhole" the sculpture is a contemplative inquiry on a theory of space and time. The artist carved the ring out of a large tree, and subsequently cast it and polished the interior. Pallafray (b. France) 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. This work is 1/10.
