Félix Valdelièvre

sculpting artist

Félix Valdelière’s current work is based on the destruction of an oblong-shaped volume. This form, which he considers as essential in the same way as the sphere or cube, is the common thread of his approach, using two millimetre thick sheet metal. The circles he shapes to create his sculptures have for him the symbolism of the cycle, the eternal restart, the fullness and therefore Life, the latter evoking movement, which he likes the idea of contradictions: giving movement to rigidity, exploiting the technical properties of iron to generate “stable imbalances”, working on patinas to create confusion on the material of which his works are made.The field of investigation being wide and his need to vary the nuances between each piece, makes him oscillate between sculptures very much in movement and others playing more on contrasts of materials, or even both, he has no other pretensions in his journey than to show works with harmonious and singular forms… His creations have no name because none seem relevant to him and he likes the idea of a total freedom of interpretation…
