The oscillating curves of a sine wave grow to be a disfiguring attribute in Léo Caillard’s ongoing Wave Stone sequence. Carved in white Carrara marble and stone with inexperienced and grey ripples, the French artist’s modern renditions of Aphrodite, Laocoön, and Venus seem to have warped, glitched, or reworked into a good spiral. A lot of Caillard’s work is anachronistic, and he tells Colossal that “the face of the statue connects the piece to its actuality, a illustration of a classical and iconic determine from the previous,” whereas the abstractions create new gaps of detrimental house.
Caillard has just a few exhibitions slated for the approaching months, and you’ll observe information about these exhibits along with new works on his Instagram.
