Artist Uses Bronze To Pull Boulders Apart
Romain Langlois is a sculptor based in Auvergne, France. Born in 1977 in St Etienne, the self-taught artist turned his attention to bronze for its ‘vibratory and long-lasting quality’ in 2002 (before then he was working with primarily clay and plaster).
“This metal alloy has the ability to seal in and reveal the emotion placed. Then he learned and integrated stonemasonry into his sculptures. If his approach to bronze is linked to a surface principle, his utilization of the mineral suggests a far denser one.” – says artist.
