A polished stainless-steel sphere sits artfully balanced between two bright red cubes in this dynamic modern sculpture by Quebec artist Phillipe Pallafray. ‘Equilibre’ means ‘balance’ in French. Pallafray uses industrial components—steel and stainless steel that he cuts, shapes, folds, and welds to create work designed to represent the duality of nature and the industrial world. This is an editioned work that can also be commissioned.
“What is removed from the sculptures, the voluntary emptiness, recalls the ephemeral and fragile nature of life.” Phillipe Pallafray
He is a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada. Born in France, he emigrated to Canada ten years ago and currently lives in Ile d’Orléans, Québec. 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.
