The Meeting

Sculpture, Bronze with patina, 350x240x128cm , 2014
Artist:  Etienne (b.1952), France
 
Location:  CapitaGreen Level 1, Singapore

 

Originally titled La Rencontre in French, The Meeting is a sculpture depicting conversations, sharing and exchange among neighbours, friends or even strangers. The three figures, linked by one unique body in the artist’s signature style of incomplete anatomic parts, express the importance of human relationship built though constructive meetings. A flight of birds cutting across the composition symbolises the beauty and liberty of their thoughts. Etienne wrote: “Today, the entire world meets. Countries share ideas and mutual aids. Hope cannot exist without constructive meetings, which contemplate the future of the people and happiness for all, in peace.

Artist’s Biography

Etienne has a degree in plastic arts. His works are exhibited internationally and collected by private collectors, institutions, and corporations. He worked with marble, stone and wood initially, but soon opted for bronze, which he felt allowed him to deal with solids and hollows better. Etienne’s works strike an organic balance between mass and space.
