A new poem from Hervé Deleu
This time Hervé Deleu was inspired by Spirit.
Photo impression opening exposition PASSION! in Finestrat
This exhibition I’ll show 20 horses in bronze both figurative and lightly abstract, and 30 drawings of nude models in different materials. I am an avid horse lover and have been riding horses for years. My passion for horses, especially the dynamics of horses, is what I try to capture in my bronze sculptures. “Everything is alive and moving, your horses seem to jump off their pedestals“, such reactions I often get on my bronzes.
I have also been drawing nude models for years, short poses of 1, 2 or 5 minutes as well as 20 minute poses. I can be fascinated by a beautiful line that I see in a model: an attitude, the position of the head, a light on the human body, that can be sò beautiful, I try to ‘capture’ that in my drawings. I work in different materials, like pencil, ink, pastel chalk, conté or a combination of them. I make quick sketches with a few lines and sometimes I make more elaborate drawings in pastel.
Opening: 22nd of November at 5 pm at sala d’exposicions de la bibliotheca ‘Els nostres mestres’, carrer Sant Josep 10 – 12, Finestrat old town. Opening hours: Monday – Friday 9:30 am – 1:30 pm and 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm until December 20th 2018. On Friday I am present at 11 am and give guided tours in English, Dutch, German, French or Spanish. For instance on November 23rd an English tour takes place at 11 o’clock and December 7th in German. Please send me an email or call me if you want to participate. Other tours are possible on request.
