Olivier Duhamel : Sculpture by Numbers ( August 03 – 15th, 2015 )

Olivier Duhamel is regarded as one of the most talented figurative sculptors in New Zealand. Largely self-taught as an artist, he arrived from France in 1987 and settled on Waiheke Island – where he casts his trademark bronze figurines in his home foundry. He is captivated by the beauty of the female form; and often uses this as a springboard for his drawings and classically elegant figurines.

Breaking away from his usual medium of bronze, Olivier has recently begun to explore the qualities of wood, reconstructing the ‘Topology’ of the human form by reconstructing bodies from sheets of laser cut plywood. “This medium allows me to scale up my work without breaking the bank” says Duhamel. “Although the ‘pancake’ effect resulting from this construction method makes for an irregular surface, the amount of detail that can be suggested is amazing… I want to encourage people to step into Remuera Gallery and be enchanted by the pieces presented”

In his latest body of work, Duhamel explores and develops Topology of the human form pushing the work into use of new materials and scales.
