Intricate line drawings and their sculptural evolutions

Intricate line drawings and their sculptural evolutions

The works of Parisian artist Fabien Merelle are both unsettling and intriguing. The detailed drawings done in black ink and watercolor present unique worldviews where spines grow out of a man’s back or vultures surround a figure.

In two instances, the detailed drawings have been rendered into three dimensions. The piece Pentateuque, where an elephant is perched atop a man’s back, was transformed into a 75 centimeter sculpture made of cast resin, hair, paint and fabric. Similarly, the piece, Tronçonné, which translates to the word sawed, was transformed from a ink and watercolor drawing into a silicone sculpture.
