Alain Mailland
soul of the wood

All my work is based on the beauty of wood.

I mainly use precious roots and species from the South of France.

There is a correspondence between all the species living on earth.

You can find animal or mineral shapes in roots and vegetable forms, and in stone or bones.

We humans are linked with all things growing on the earth.

This is what I feel when I make my sculptures.  These creatures seem to be alive, because I first turn growing shapes, like flower shapes.

I reproduce the expansion of a flower or all circular structures of the universe.
