St LAURENT D'AIGOUZE (30), France
An ornamental cabinetmaker and sculptor by training, Hervé Louail dit DARLOU has long worked to restore statuary, altarpieces and furniture.... This direct confrontation with the works of the past was a wonderful school: learning skills, but also and above all learning to look, to understand from within and to remain humble.
"DARLOU is a complete artist, with whom creativity is overflowing. So much so that in 2003, he created Barnabé, a strange character born in a block of stone, all round and without faces, with whom everyone can identify. There is a lot of tenderness, a certain nostalgia for childhood, a familiarity and a reassuring candor in this Barnabé......... Beyond a visual signature, this character is above all for DARLOU a way to propose a poetic universe, full of kindness and empathy. "Géraldine Robin - ART ABSOLUTELY
These last works go even further in emotional intensity. The new staging of his characters leads us towards a quest for interiority and spirituality where time seems to be suspended, stopped.
