Two organic, stainless steel shapes contain polished undulating open and closed spaces that intersect like pieces of a puzzle in this table top sized sculpture. The variety of lively surfaces in this piece that reflect each other, the light and space in which the work is placed, change as the viewer moves. The title of the work 'The Wind' reflects this dynamic movement.
Philippe Pallafray (b. 1965, France) is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and of the Conseil des métiers d'art du Québec. He worked for 15 years in fine arts before immigrating to Canada. In 2005, he established a studio on Île d'Orléans, Québec. Pallafray integrates polished stainless steel with natural and man-made materials to create provocative indoor and outdoor sculptures.
Pallafray has exhibited in the US, France and Canada at the John B. Aird Gallery, the Artist Project Toronto, Alliance Française de Toronto and the McMichael Canadian Collection. In 2016, he was artist-in-residence at Saint-Georges de Beauce, where he was commissioned to create the sculpture Aquagraphie. Pallafray's work is held in private and public collections in North America and France.
