French artist, Philippe Pasqua has emerged as one of the major artists of his generation. His taste for the monumental is opposed to the attraction he has for what is most vulnerable and deep. For several years, Pasqua has also been going to Carrara frequently, where he sculpts skulls weighing several tons that are like massive stars radiating telluric energy. At the foundry, he produces large bronze casts that are then plunged into baths of chrome. Pasqua’s huge sculptures have embellished the streets of Paris and were exhibited at the 53rd Venice Biennale, in Moscow, Germany, Beijing, Monaco, Israel, and the United States. His latest exhibition in September 2017, extended until January 2018, was a great success. Today, Philippe Pasqua is considered one of the most important sculptors and painters working in France, and his works collect large sums in auctions. Pasqua has exhibited in several museums to great acclaim, including his retrospective at Ahlers Foundation (Hanover, Germany, 2010), “Painting and Drawing” at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (June 2010), and the monumental show “Borderline” at the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco (2017).
