From painting to sculpture, Alain Mandon seeks to bring colors, contrasts and three-dimensional effects to life. The volumes do not escape his work on the body, in particular that of the Woman.
An artist in search of matter
Born in 1967 in Limoges, Alain Mandon, represents himself as a self-taught artist, always attracted by abstract creation.
It was during the Royan holidays that he got the idea of diverting the resin, used for surfboards, in order to freeze the liveliness of the pigments chosen on his canvases. The fluid aspect that emerges from the latter, which contrasts violently with the natural black sand, allows it to travel above a flow of molten lava.
From matter is born woman
His sculptures sublimate the female body by making it timeless thanks to the molten alloys that he projects so as to make the curves and lines of a woman's breasts even more light and graceful. The cutting of his sculptures and their way of being cast gives them an antique appearance rugged by time while retaining their beauty.
Alain Mandon plays with textures by mixing atypical materials such as resin, natural sand, or pewter for a rendering combining movement, mat and shine.
