It is better to admire Michel Argouges’s sculptures than merely have a discussion over them because his art works are certainly far beyond words. Standing in front of his sculptures, you definitely will feel their elegance; for this reason, it is strongly recommended to have an encounter with them.
He usually works on granite, stainless steel, concrete and wood. By shaping skillfully the material unbalanced and asymmetrical, it then becomes flat, convex, or concave that not only reflects the light but also forms curves and angles. His sculptures bring easily a sense of familiarity as well as friendliness to the viewers. His works are appealing not because of superb skills but of the sheer beauty of art he presents without the deliberate intention to perform art.
This sculptor makes us fall in love in an unnoticed way with the beautiful and passionate combination of stainless steel and concrete as a whole both of which are so natural, unprocessed yet rarely used. He has solved the expected problems out of combining the two materials, and that was all he did. He then is going to generously leave his art works to us to complete by admiration。
