If not to have a concept is a concept, then, this could be Fernand Greco‘s one.
“Any creative process starts with a meeting, a place, a person, a story” Fernand Greco.
Fernand Greco’s own words perfectly introduce this exhibition. Surprising figures, black, white, red, yellow, orange, but mostly on a steel basis. The artist also happens to be a doctor, whose almost obsession for steel material can easily be explained.
He has initially learned anatomical sculpture and bodies reconstruction’ work in different hospitals, before working on metal. His natural curiosity also conduced him to try different techniques mixing stone, wood and also metal.
After a medical thesis on tetanus, using rust material appears to him as a way to fight against such an eroding disease.
He shapes iron for the hard contact with material, as well as the physical exercice, because each creative process is a struggle.
Fernand likes twisting, putting back up, bringing closer, melting and turning away things from their initial use.
Creation process is a release, a mode of expression, a therapy to him.
