This work is part of a series called Stripe Pose, where I explore different renderings of the human figure, definition, identity, with stripes of resin, offering different lectures between the figurative and the abstract, going back and forth.
For the most part my work is drawing, at first with pencil and later with blades using different techniques of carving and casting resin on wood panels. The finished work has a sculptural dimension with a decisive edge much like in a bas-relief.

Philippe Jestin's work straddles the line between the figurative and the abstract. He works with material as well as subject matter to define new spaces and create a sense of fluidity. His most iconic work features layers of resin to create strong lines. Many of his pieces have a sculptural dimension and a decisive edge like a bas-relief.
