| ANTOINE DUFILHO |
It is by being aware of his roots that a man can grow. Antoine Dufilho knows them, his roots, which plunge into art and medicine. His work proves it.
As a child, Antoine Dufilho learned about the visual arts with his great-uncle, actor, painter and sculptor. Later, studying medicine allowed him to discover and dissect the complexity of human biomechanics. Architectural studies then led him to a new approach to sculpture, in particular to the work of the framework, which once laid bare reveals a succession of full and empty, bringing lightness and dynamism to the general form. .
Antoine Dufilho is self-taught, he experiments with different techniques such as molding and welding to gradually build the aesthetics of his art around this DNA that characterizes him; he began to devote himself fully to it in 2012.
His work consists in exposing an alternation of full and empty, materializing a skeleton, breaking down the shapes into successive layers. A movement is created by this sequenced representation. It is therefore a kinetic vision of a static object that the artist offers us, in particular thanks to the wandering of his observer, which allows a different interpretation depending on his point of observation. The dynamic effect is accentuated by an alternation of symmetries and asymmetries, causing an acceleration or deceleration effect.
DISCARD THE FIGURATIVE
The artist is moving forward and intends to advance his art with him, now freeing himself from the figurative, thanks to the abstract.
In fact, abstract art does without a model, only aesthetics and creativity count. It is therefore a new step for Antoine Dupilho, who used his passion for the automobile and his knowledge of architecture to learn sculpture, different techniques, to put into practice different concepts, and more generally, discover his style. He now wishes to apply his work on the representation of movement and lightness in the abstract, which will allow him to go even further in his art.
In his new creations, Antoine Dufilho offers us an optical illusion, furtively revealing the balance of a cube, to the vagaries of the movement of metallic hands.
