Since 2013, Philippe Crivelli has been sculpting clay and the female body in a very personal and contemporary version of the Classics of the genre.
Born in Carrières-sur-Seine in 1947, a former retired computer engineer, he sees his daily life as an artist as obvious. Surrounded by a few bronze creatures of about forty centimeters, he imagines, models, shapes busts and faceless bodies, cheeky breasts and rounded buttocks.
Her interpretation of movement, materials, and the personal writing of emotion, desire, expectation plunge the viewer into the intimacy and mystery of the eternal feminine. Like a knowing nod to women, Philippe Crivelli expresses through free gestures the pronounced taste for their sensuality, their humor and their unvarnished grace. Complicity again, with men this time, he shows these inspiring shapes, these often naughty postures, sometimes provocative, never shocking.
"Beauty in pieces and in all its forms, in the form of a pretty compliment to women. It is my declaration of love as an artist." Philippe crivelli
