Painter and Sculpture, Alain MANDON, born February 15, 1967 in Limoges, represents himself as a self-taught artist, always attracted by abstract creation. He constantly seeks to bring colours, contrasts, 3D effects and volumes to life through atypical materials such as resin, natural sand, or tin, while combining movement, matt and gloss.
It was during a Royal holiday that he came up with the idea of diverting the resin, used for surfboards, in order to freeze the liveliness of the pigments used on his canvases. The fluid aspect of the latter, which contrasts violently with the natural black sand, allows him to travel over a flow of molten lava.
His sculptures sublimate the female body by making it timeless thanks to molten alloys that he projects in such a way as to make the curves and lines of a woman's bosom even lighter and more graceful. The cutting of his sculptures and the way they are cast give them an antique look that has been damaged by time while preserving their beauty.
