Quebecois sculptor Paul Duval’s ‘Black hands,’ is at once an imposing and mysterious figure. The tall, slender male, one black hand raised to his head appears to be reacting to something or someone. The viewer’s eyes are immediately drawn to the unusually large black hands and splashes of black paint cover the character’s torso, legs and feet. Duval has created a series of expressive paper mache and wire figurative pieces. Each one exudes a different personality evident in their posture, gesture and colour. “An addition of coloured paper sometimes enhances the gray of my favourite material. This medium brings out attitudes, emotions, group relations or even wounds.” Paul Duval He is a member of the Canadian Sculptors Society and of the Conseil de la sculpture du Québec.
