About

AYN GALLERY propose a curated collection of unique objects like this exceptional and a unique table from the artist Philippe Pasqua. Pasqua is one of the most important French contemporary artists of his generation: influenced by major artists such as Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon, this self-taught artist has been exhibiting his paintings, drawings and sculptures worldwide. This unique piece 1/1 is made of bronze and glass. The base of the table is composed of vanities in black patina bronze, steel and black tinted glass top. The top is 4 cm thick and 250 cm long x 195 cm deep x 75 cm high to the glass top, the bar that crosses the skull is 140 cm high from the top to the ground. Among Pasqua's masterpieces are the vanities, often made in bronze, for which he is also famous. He explores the theme of the vanities as a symbol of the soul in ancient Egypt. Through his extraordinary career, the French artist Philippe Pasqua has established himself as one of the major artists of his generation. His taste for the monumental is opposed to his attraction to the most vulnerable and profound. For the past few years, the artist has also frequently traveled to Carrara, where he sculpts skulls weighing several tons that are like massive stars emitting telluric energy. At the foundry, he makes large bronze casts that are then immersed in chrome baths. The skulls that emerge - human or animal - become like mirrors: sometimes we see only their blinding reflection, sometimes they disappear to let emerge what they reflect. And as we approach them, it is inevitably our own image that we see. Pasqua's immense sculptures have graced the streets of Paris, and have been exhibited at the 53rd Venice Biennale, in Moscow, Germany, Beijing, Monaco, Israel and the United States. Today, Philippe Pasqua is considered one of the most important sculptors and painters working in France, and his works collect significant sums at auctions. Pasqua has exhibited in several museums and has been highly regarded, including his retrospective at the Ahlers Foundation- Hanover, Germany) "Painting and Drawing" at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art , Zemack Gallery -Israël and the monumental exhibition "Boarderline" at the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco.
