Michaël Cailloux is devoted and passionate about Art Nouveau and especially René Lalique’s jewellery with his sketches and theatrical combs. The artist viscerally sculpts copper with jewellery craftsmanship and etching techniques. With “Manthis Religiosa”, the praying mantis merges with nature and becomes floral and plant-like. The insect is dressed in bindweeds, a flower often represented in the artist’s work.

Michaël Cailloux’s lucky animal, the fly of these golden droplets is a symbol of life, where the swarm becomes the breasts and the buzzing, the origin of fertile creation. The golden reflections are countless and the myriad of sparkles seem to be birthing the essence of the world to offer to the audience the sweet hypnosis of a glistening ocean.

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. Aquatint etching
