copy of Marc Nucera - The kiss

Another Baiser by Marc Nucera, an emblematic work in which we discover his art of sculpture using a tool that only he knows how to master with such delicacy, namely his chainsaw.

The statue, 1.60 m high, rests on a 50 cm by 40 cm base.

Height 160 cm - Base 50 x 40 cm - Cypress - 2015

“I start with a single trunk that I pierce in the middle to draw a line of tension between attraction and repulsion”. 

This is how Marc presents his series of kisses.

This one is imbued with the ardor and sensuality of a passionate

For 30 years, Marc Nucera has been training in his studio garden to acquire “gesture formulas”.  “He wields his tools with unrivalled virtuosity, blending delicacy and determination. The drapes, pleats, twists and volutes conceived by this exceptional cutter of shapes and matter, inert or living, play with light and shadow, giving the impression of liquidity, unctuosity, as if melting the hard substance - cypress, cedar or plane - that he works with unfailing tenacity”. For his creations, Marc doesn't really make any preliminary drawings; he prefers to adapt to the tree, to play with its knots... “to create is to forget oneself, to let go of the intuition that comes from the wind”. Working with a chainsaw is tiring, and the gesture demanding. But if Marc Nucera says he's exhausted at the end of his work, it's because of his creation, because of the forces transmitted by the material that took hold of him and inspired him, that he's as if emptied. What Retour De Voyage loves about Marc Nucera is this osmosis with the tree, this love of wood and its softness,  its scent, the way it captures the warmth of light. “The tree is the power of life".
