This work is part of a series of 4 sculptures in the same style. Inspired by the jellyfish and octopus that inhabit our oceans, it plays on the lightness, finesse, flexibility and transparency of the volume, always seeking to preserve a form of balance and harmony. The mesh technique explores the singular character of wire and constantly pushes its limits. Both raw and refined, supple and rigid, it becomes a precious link and a great finesse in the realization of sculptures. The mesh is made from a coil of wire. Assembled one to the other by a series of meticulous gestures, they give birth to a flexible form which will be modelled according to the added or removed meshes, as well as by their size and the choice of the thread. This work is to be hung.

Materials used: galvanized iron wire and brass wire.

Delphine Grandvaux
France

KAZoART artist since 2021

After a childhood spent in Berlin where she was introduced to sculpture, Delphine Grandvaux moved to Strasbourg in 1990 to study musicology. In parallel to her activity as a piano teacher, she deepened her modelling technique by taking classes at the Arts Décoratifs and took part in several exhibitions.

In the 2000s, wishing to move towards lighter and airier creations, she directs her work towards wire and develops in 2017 the technique of mesh in her works.

Delphine Grandvaux's artistic path follows a thread. An iron, copper or brass wire, supple and colourful, to which she sometimes associates other materials such as paper, pewter, wool or wood.

The technique of knitting, which consists of creating meshes from a wire and fitting them into each other through a series of small gestures, allows her to explore several facets of volume, to underline its external but also internal forms through a game of transparency and construction. This process leads him towards light and flexible creations that seem to play permanently with the light according to the places where they are arranged.

She finds her inspiration in nature, plant, animal and mineral. "It is an infinite field of exploration. Everything here is a matter of sensation and therefore of creation. I like to explore its multiple facets in search of a balance, beauty or truth other than what is given to see. A bud becomes princely, a pebble bears its history, a tree in the hollow of which its secrets are whispered.... I let myself be guided by my emotions to feed my imagination."

In all of her creations, Delphine Grandvaux likes to evoke things rather than define them, thus emphasising matter and form.
