About

Artist: Dominique Pollès Media: bronze Year: 1997 Edition: 1/4 Dimensions: 35 x 22 x 25 cm; 13.8 x 8.7 x 9.84 in Pollès was born in Paris in 1945. Like Leonard da Vinci in an anatomical search of perfection, of representation of movement, with an almost scientifically or medical glance, Pollès holds the utmost passion of anatomy: he learns about the human body, the complicated hank of muscles, movements of members and all the bodily mechanics. That’s why in 1964 he starts medicine school and along side goes to the Charpentier Academy where he follows art lessons. In 1966, he encountered sculpture in London where he was invited by his friend Enzo Plazota. This final step teaching him all the basics of sculpture. Pollès then decides to go to live in Italy in Carrare, an important art place. He moved in 1970 and settled in Pietrasanta where he still living at.. Hist sculptures, by creating a vision of the moving beings, polished and smoothed, break the pureness of aestheticism. He just knows one theme, one model - the female form. According to Pollès, this is the most beautiful form, the most harmonious one. “When we are looking at a feminine body, it is splendid, it is musical”. His love of women, the sensuality ,the complexity, the shapes and passions, brought him to explore the female form. Since the beginning he has created a singularly stylised cubist form, which becoming his signature form. All are cast in bronze by Pollès himself and made in a series of four with one artist’s proof. His masterliness of the patina is considered exceptional. The world’s recognition of his craft is evidenced by the many awards he has won, the unique places he has shown and the prestigious private collections he is in, including that of Princess Caroline of Monaco. Pollès was honoured in an exhibition outside Paris, sponsored by the French Government, called “Sculptors from Rodin to the Present”. He was one of the few living sculptors to be honoured; the others include Abakanowicz, Arman, Saint-Phalle & Wesselmann. Maurice Rheims, a respected Art Critic, and a member of the French Academy, one has said “I consider Pollès to be one of the most outstanding sculptors of our time.” His show in the Bagatelle Gardens in Paris in 1998 was a major donor as he was one of the only 2 artists who have ever been allowed to present their works in the Bagatelle. The other artist is Henry Moore.
