Artwork description

Nicolas Deshayes’ sculptures use materials such as annodised aluminium and vacuum formed plastic to embrace the aesthetics of 21st century design. Despite their emphasis on slick industrial surfaces and physicality, Deshayes' works maintain a human presence in the form of glutinously rich, bodily allusions, engaging with the materials in ways that distort the ordinary.

Special thanks to the artist and Jonathan Viner Gallery, London.
