With this series of work Philippe Jestin continues to explore different renderings of the human figure, definition, identity, lines offering different lectures between the figurative and the abstract, going back and forth, open to the potential of a fluid perception.

For the most part his work is drawing, at first with pencil and later with blades using different techniques of carving and casting resin on wood panels. The finished work has a sculptural dimension with a decisive edge much like in a bas-relief.

Over the years he has produced works with wood, metal, paper, charcoals. One material constant in Philippe’s work is the resin which is applied with different casting techniques, often born out of experimentation and necessity to bring forth the initial idea. He often seeks challenge in the nature of the craft.
