Quebecois sculptor Paul Duval has created a delightfully engaging series of table-top sculptures that portray a variety of characters. Bella is a bronze-coloured female figure dressed in a bright green floor length gown; her hair pulled back in a bun. Her arms outstretched as if to say, ‘voila!’—here I am! Duval uses paper mache, wire and metal to sculpt each unique personality.
“This medium brings out attitudes, emotions, group relations or even wounds.” Paul Duval
