Christophe Dumont, a sculptor hippalchimist
The horse as an exercise for style.
Twisting, bending, cutting, heating, welding, bending,
Shaping, pushing, and forging!
By dint of humor,
By dint of simplicity and obviousness,
the animal is born… empty… and yet there.
A transparent presence born out of fire and rust.
The exaltation of the movement.
The fact is accomplished.
Christophe Dumont does not disturb us,
He turns us into hippoets.
