Major artist of his generation, Philippe Pasqua imposes himself by a non-standard itinerary.
In his artistic approach, Philippe Pasqua (born in 1965 in Grasse) explores the field of his emotions and gives them a collective dimension. He pierces with his acute gaze the tumult of history, passing from ancient times to a burning news. He speaks of the exhaustion of earth, the disappearance of species, as well as the greatness of the universe. His painting tells the man. Ugliness and beauty intersect and her models become iconic. All reflect the universal. The intensity of looks, strength of expressions permeate his paintings.
Technically Philippe Pasqua goes from drawing to painting, from collage to sculpture, in the same mastery of an assertive style. In 1999, Philippe Pasqua takes up the concept of vanities in sculpture: he interprets the subject of the human skull, which he adorns with precious materials and fragile butterflies. The ephemeral and the inconstancy of existence are confronted with the eternal. In recent years, the evolution of the world and species has become the subject of its concerns. The thought of Darwin and that of contemporary scientists, associated with the notion of a sacred close to the religious, inspire in his achievements.
