Brendan Hesmondhalgh’s animal sculptures are primarily theatrical. They remind us of shots taken when the animal gets up before embarking on an action or when it shows itself proudly in parade to attract a partner. Combining elegance and physical nobility, his fox will never know the refusal of a vixen! Thus Brendan likes his animals to offer the spectator a balance between a breaking point where the nascent movement invests them and what immobile with the meaning of a potential gesture. Its modeling follows the same logic. Powerful and full of spirit, it only reinforces the impression of a splendor temporarily frozen in its ceramic magic.
