Dominique POLLÈS (1945 – )
Fascinated by anatomy, he studied medicine and also attended drawing classes at the Academy Charpentier. On 3 July 1966, he discovered sculpture by a friend and sculptor named Enzo Plazota. He said then: “overnight, as soon as I knew the form, I felt that I would give up everything for it.” On 28 August 1970, he arrived in Carrara, and has since lived in Pietrasanta . A few years later, he created his own foundry and almost exclusively uses bronze for his works. His creations in continuity to the tradition of Greek sculpture, are a short-circuit between Brancusi’s purity, Henry Moore’s figurative abstraction and Modigliani’s lines and forms. Considered as the inventor of the “Organic Cubism”, he is immediately identifiable while he is reinventing the interpretation of the fullness of flesh through a new and personal mythology.
