About the work :

Man is a smoke-fired stoneware sculpture by contemporary French artist Cécile Raynal. It is of a seated male figure, at his feet is a playful baby, lying on his stomach. During her stay, Cécile Raynal shared in the hospital staff’s daily life, which included Georges (George), the model – as well as their patient’s, witnessing the special relationship that doctors, nurses and other carers form with their patients.

The sculpture Stop is originally part of the installation A l’enfant qui nous garde (with Georges) with the sculpture Baby I. This sculpture can be sold by itself or with the other work of the installation. Contact us for more details. 

This portrait is part of a series of sculptures designed by the artist during an eight-week art residency at a private hospital: Natecia, in Lyon. During several stays, the artist immersed herself into maternity life, crisscrossing the corridors with her sketchbook or modelling there and then in clay the portraits of the people who she came across, health professionals as well as patients. These sessions, marked with sensitive exchanges, created clay figures caught within the very particular circumstances of these encounters: the expectation of a happy event, always tinged with uncertainty for the future parents; passion and tension, constantly linked in the healthcare teams work.

Back in the studio, further sculptures were crafted. Figures of animals, new-borns, stuffed toys, all arranged on wooden blocks, bringing a dialogue to the portraits. Cécile Raynal has woven poetic, incongruous or even playful links into her sculptures, echoing the perceptions and reflections during her residency. For the sculptor, motherhood appeared as a real sounding board for fundamental questions such as the relationships between life, childhood and parenthood and the power struggles.

This sculpture is a one-off piece, sold with a certificate of authenticity.
