Pascal Bernier

Tableau de Chasse 1

Pascal Bernier’s art work depicts an ongoing theme about human and animal relationships. This Brussels based sculptor uses and manipulates different representation of animals to take a detached look at social behavior.  Some of Bernier’s work is a social commentary about game hunting (and what is done to the animal’s body after it is killed); Bernier work represents animals in a very sad manner questioning your own ethics on animal rights.

Bruce Ingram’s sculptures feel both natural and fantastic. Like discovering a new cave system or a perfectly preserved dead hummingbird in your garage (which really happened to me; the bird thing not the cave thing).

One of the hardest working artist in the game.
