Sculptures by Quentin Garel

About the work:

Paris based sculptor Quentin Garel’s bronze sculptures constantly encourage questions. Are they actual fossils? Are they wood? Intricate details and textures on Garel’s sculptures intrigue viewers who are often surprised to learn that they are, in fact, bronze sculptures. Garel first begins with a drawing, then makes a carving in wood. From there he makes the mold to cast the bronze sculpture. The result is a beautifully realistic shining skull of a bird, dolphin or gorilla. Others, originally sculpted in Styrofoam, appear to be real bone. They too are bronze. Quentin’s unique sculptures, or “trophies” as he calls them, seem organic in material and origin but unlike real wood or bone, these works of art will stand the test of time.
