    Odonate

    Michaël Cailloux’s interpretation of this animal king from the “Art Nouveau” era certainly brings to mind René Lalique. The same subtle sculpture, the same love for nature and with the same fascination for metamorphosis. The craft on the veins of the wings is perfection, absolute lace-like meticulous work. Then when the eyes gaze off into the rigorousness of the piece, there seem to be something of a “Paris of yesterday” floating in the air. Maybe it’s Sarah Bernard’s ghost.

    At the Top of Our Lungs

    Art gives in to nature and the beauty of humour. This comb is certainly excessive, but hairstyling is not its intention. It’s an ode, a peaceful homage to a love of nature and its fragility. It’s not up to nature to be functional anymore, to transform itself into an object. It’s up to the object to become nature and pave its path until we forget it once had a utility, that it had a use, to just become beautiful and decorative.

    Paris by night

    This piece, with the Eiffel Tower illuminated by floral fireworks and intimately adorned with two snails, is a love letter from Michaël Cailloux to Paris. The artist reminds us how even though the city has been hurt multiple times these past few years, it remains as majestic as ever. This piece is like a snapshot, a joyful postcard to refute and counter the tragic image imposed on the City of Lights. “We are Paris, we are together, we are happy” seem to be exclaimed by these two sensual gastropods. The animal with no animosity appears to be peaceful, soft and a bringer of hope before a cold and hopeless world. The grim and morbid can’t stay any longer; life and only life remains.

    Ghost fish

    Symbol of fertility and abundance in many cultures, this ghost fish seems to be very alive. In the style of skeletons waltzing to macabre dances, this fish possessed, by the flowers he’s wearing is perfectly happy and pleased with his state. It’s not surprising, knowing that death is one of Michaël Cailloux’s dearest themes to research. Nonetheless, there’s no tragedy here, it’s merely an exploration of this theme along amusing and subtle roads, with this ghost fish as the guide.

    Floral Vanity

    This skull seems to have recently escaped from one of the many Mexican “Day of the Dead” festivities. It surely portrays Michaël Cailloux’s research and work around the theme of death. A joyful death, where sadness has no place. A death that can sometimes be more lively than life itself, to which this smiling skull is a testament. The artist always goes back and forth between classic and modern, thus revisiting in his own fanciful way the vanities of previous centuries.

    Metamorphosis

    With this metamorphosis, Michaël Cailloux continues his work towards the subconscious, the dream and the passage from life into death. Metamorphosis as its own transformation. Death through desertion of oneself and resurgence to the self in another form. As usual in the artist’s work, the starting point is a hint to its references. Key to the Art Nouveau movement, the theme of metamorphosis here is the beginning of a more personal and dream-like exploration.
