Paul Le Grand

Paul Le Grand

In his work, sculptor Paul Le Grand deals intensively with the issue of identity, and thus with the issues of perception and interpretation of the so-called reality. In a playful way he explores the interrelationship between surface and essence and examines in his reflections the phenomenon of reflection as questioning the interpretation of perception. In the search for the greatest possible reduction of the three-dimensional form of expression he chooses the mirror as the preferred material for his work.
Not only does the mirror in its two-dimensionality unmistakably refer to the third dimension – it is also the carrier of the moving image: every smallest own location shift of the observer means that the image on the mirror moves, and each new look into the mirror means a new perspective of the shown image. Which means that each observed image is as unique as volatile. At the same time the fragility of glass may symbolize the questioning of the alleged validity of one’s own worldview.
