French, born 1947

Daniel Hourdé’s bronze sculptures, paintings, and charcoal drawings reside between the worlds of dream and nightmare. He uses his formal training to create human-scale expressionistic forms—realistic skeletons and skinless rippled bodies that twist and turn in a morbid choreography. Revealing the artist’s mastery of both technique and human anatomy, his lyrical sculptures are remarkable for their ability to capture the kinetic energy of bodies moving.
