About the Work

Rendered in many small, stainless steel discs, a hollow head floated on a clear, plexiglas cylinder appears to melt, the discs diminishing in size and forming 'puddles' that flow off the edge of the table in this 18 inch tall sculpture. The work, titled 'Iceberg', may be a metaphor for the role of man in our changing and warming climate. Philippe Pallafray is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada and of the Conseil des métiers d’art du Québec. Born in France, he emigrated to Canada ten years ago and currently lives on Ile d’Orléans, Québec. He uses steel and stainless steel that he cuts, shapes, folds, and welds. Pallafray's sculptures have been exhibited in Canada and the United States, both as part of group and solo exhibitions. They are also part of public and private collections in Canada, France, and the United States. In 2016 he was artist-in-residence in Saint-Georges de Beauce, Québec, to create the sculpture Aquagraphie for Veilleux Park.
