Magic of Minimalism

He is a magician when it comes to transforming wood. Pierme’s sculptures evoke qualities of architecture and nature, combining balance, energy, and movement. “I have an admiration for architecture,” he says. “And then, when I look at what nature does, I’m very admirative as well. So, what I’m often trying to do is take what I receive from the natural world and mix it with the human influence.” That contrast of the organic and mechanical typifies his love of tension and contradiction — the way color and positive-negative juxtaposition can create a
kinetic effect. The results are works of art of striking minimalistic elegance with a post-modern quality and sophistication.

Pascal Pierme - Origines Dual

By Christian Hohmann on Apr 21, 2020 11:41:28 PM

Twenty curvaceously sculpted, abstract wooden sticks dance together on the wall in Pascal Pierme’s delightful work Origines Dual. The minimalist forms present a gorgeous wood surface yet when viewed from the sides, the “dual” tones of lime green and periwinkle blue appear. Playfully reminiscent of the earth’s organic, biomorphic forms such as a tribal conglomeration of cactus bones, sandwiched between the hues of grass and sky.
