LOS ANGELES,, Victor Douieb studio,
Victor Douieb Sculptures announces Carving The Tiger, a bronze sculpture based on the painting of the same name by renown artist Pascal Lecocq, the inspiration for which originated with Victor’s earlier sculpture Tiger Chasing Turtle.
“When Pascal first showed me his wonderful painting,” say Victor, “I was not only extremely flattered that such an important artist would choose to paint me, but I also became inspired to try and reproduce his painting in bronze. I wasn’t even sure if I could do it – and that became a challenge for me.”
At nearly two feet tall, the bronze-with-patina sculpture has a multi-color finish; a tannish brown for the shark and a deep blue for the little diver/sculptor – Victor Douieb – with his block of marble a lighter shade, devised as an homage to Pascal Lecocq, known as “The Painter of Blue” because of his rich use of the color in his work.
Describing how he got the idea for the painting originally, Pascal says, “When I first met Victor at a show in 2010, he’d mentioned how he’d always wanted one of my original paintings. Then when I saw a few of his pieces that were on display there – I’m an addicted shark lover – I loved them at first glance; for the anatomical perfection or for the stainless steel patina, and the portrait of Cristina made the magic.”
Shortly thereafter, inspiration hit. “As always in my work, a painting just pops up in my mind in a spark. I told Victor ‘I have an idea.’”
