Sculpture in polished and polished polychrome concrete.

"About twenty coats of paint are applied and then completely sanded by hand by different weights to finally achieve this satin finish. Each sculpture is a unique work of art. This volume, thanks to its pure and soft lines and its appearance, has a power of attraction, difficult to resist the temptation to caress it. Discovering it through touch is an experience that will intoxicate all your senses with an intense and soothing pleasure. The dodo is the emblem of extinct animals. My work consists of an attractive aesthetic search, a harmony between volume and line. I go to the point, very few movements, very few details, as if it were the last pose before posterity." - Gilles Quéré

There are forms that are challenging. In an animal register, Gilles Quéré expresses himself with power and preciousness. Its forms are self-sufficient but they are linked by an intimate relationship. A very relationship that finds its source in an impregnated childhood: Brittany, between the "pink granite coast and the legendary coast", the hard work of cement and other minerals. A declaration of love for art in front of the "crying woman" of Pablo Picasso, a teenager who, without knowing it, was already in love.

In his animal register, we find metaphors about life, about his life, a dialogue with the history of art. From Sumerian art to Chinese fixed statuary (HAN), from English sculpture by Moore, Laurens, Deacon or Flanaghan, to Pompon.

First encouraged by Gérard Venturelli and Jan Voss to pursue the expression of his inner rages in painting, G.Quéré then naturally turned to sculpture. To touch these forms is to feel these energies invested, committed and released. A form of atonement for torments symbolically represented by endangered or extinct animals. Sublimated for the pleasure of the senses.
