What is the essence of the art of Philippe Pastor?
Pastor’s expression of art using nature as a canvas is motivated by the deep-seated relationship between humans and nature. We are said to be intertwined with nature. Philippe reminds us of the role we must play to preserve nature’s beautiful fountain of life with his poignant works such as “The Burned Trees” sculptures.
“The Burnt Trees” sculptures are a heartrending depiction of the effects of deforestation. He was moved by a fire in the forest of La Garde-Freinet in France that happened in 2003 that had a devastating impact. His concerted effort to highlight our relationship with nature is shown in his exhibitions.
The essence of Philippe’s works centers on the relationship between nature and man, and how we, as humans, should be more cognizant of the role we play against/for nature in the world we live in. What distinguishes him from others is his relationship with the canvas, his uses to depict his message. He pours nature onto his canvas and nature comes alive at the touch of passion, heart and soul.
