1992, granite

 

The first time I touched clay to create a shape was the torso. I like the body so much without the limbs, without the head.

Play with the body, deform it, give it movement, directions.

 

This torso was made when I started in France. The first year, I had some pieces of wood with which I realized my first sculptures of my French period. Hatshepsut among others.

 

Today I have only one picture of this torso, the one you see here. I do not remember the buyer, he came empty-handed and left with it.

 

By cons I remember the photographer. He became Mayor of a city near Rennes.
