Le voyageur

Voyageur, Traveller by Bruno Catalano, Galerie Bartoux, avenue des Champs-Élysées, Paris
One of the “Voyageurs” (Travelers) by Bruno Catalano, Galerie Bartoux
Avenue des Champs-Élysées, 8e arrondissement
Paris, July 2012

“Bruno Catalano is a French artist born in 1960. His work reveal his desire to capture the viewers attention. Stamping his unique mark on the subject. Admiring art since his youth, it is only in 1990 that Catalano started a career as a remarkable sculptor. His talent lies in his ability to endow the inherently elusive material with a transcendent essence. As a romantic dreamer, his subject matter takes shape in the fantastic framework of the world where love, beauty and harmony reign. His passion for art will never lose its strength. ‘The universal theme of travel still inspires Bruno Catalano’. Since he started to knead clay, hundreds of ‘travelers’ have come out of his feverish hands, populating his studio while awaiting an unknown destination.”

That's one who has been x-rayed too often at the airport...

It's weird but I like it and I'd guess there would be many interpretations one could attach to this sculpture. I traveled with my job for several years and it does tend to take pieces out of you!

Re your question on Images: That's our son who was visiting from Texas. He was installing surveillance cameras around the exterior of our house (that's one of his businesses) - this being a belated Xmas gift. That involved stringing wire from one end of the attic to the other - not easy when you have a hip roof.

As to The Peddler's Wagon: I believe that Christmas section is a permanent part of the store. Which is nice if you want to get a head start on the holidays!
