This piece is part of Philippe Jestin's ongoing series, Stripe Pose, which uses sculptural stripes to form the human figure. "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," says Philippe. The relief is created with pigmented resin cast on wood panel and sealed with white acrylic paint. 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.
