  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Sculpture by Philippe Buil representing the body of a woman in steel and bronze lace covered with 24-carat gold leaf.

    To create this metal lace sculpture, the artist melted steel and bronze drop by drop in a sand mold in which he modeled the shape.
    He then applied 24-carat gold leaf on the metal lace.
    This sculpture combines the finesse and brilliance of gold on a female body: a sculpture "haute couture".

Philippe Buil

France Born in: 1964 Emergent Artist

Philippe Buil is a French artist living in Saint-Étienne, france. He creates unique bronze and steel works. Growing up in a family of artists, the choice to become a sculptor came naturally to him.

Bernard Boscher, an art critic from Cambridge Art Expertise, defines Philippe Buil as an engineer / sculptor who gives birth in his studio to strange or classical, but revisited forms.

Philippe Buil created a series of sculptures obtaining an effect by hand hammering the heated metal. He develops the technique of the facettes that allows him to cut the bronze in sheets and build forms and volumes.

Philippe Buil has developed a process that he calls "metal tears", consisting of melting bronze and steel. Drop after drop, he builds the shapes he imagines that look like ethereal lace. The alchemy of these techniques allows him associations that give birth to unique works.
