Mercedes 300 SL ' GULLWING '

The goal in this work was not to draw a vehicle ... but to symbolize what represents in the collective unconscious the image of this ultimate vision of designers and engineers in the quest for absolute beauty.


Movement in its most rhetorical sense. Nothing can stop it. Each line, each curve must serve the movement. The earth, the machine, the wind ... Everything is in everything and the eye slides on the forms as in a dream.


The fullness and the emptiness are one in this work to define only the flight, the supreme freedom of art that pays homage to the material.

Pieces of raw steel, oxidized, sanded and assembled at a distance from each other to form a sculpture in volume, in high relief, hanging a few inches from the wall with a simple hook.
