Michel Durand has a utopian vision of raw materials, in love with stones recognized only by himself and springed from the creative violence of the depths of earth.
With some steps that involve stones and iron, he shapes the figures which characterize his sculptural world.
By his creativity and his light welds, the sculptures seem «sparkling» under the shadow of his iron weaving, and even distorted faces seem so real.
In order to invite us into his secret inspiration in which burns his passion for his unique style of «Art Brut», Michel brings us back to simplicity and generosity thanks to his blowtorch.
Moreover, he shows his own reality to give us, by impressions and feelings, his blazing nature which can be easily noticed in his works. He shapes raw iron and primitive stones just like they were extracted from forges and volcanoes: Michel knows how to arouse emotion and stimulate imagination with his sculptures.
