Sculpture Saturday #54

Here’s another of our local civic works. Appropriately enough this one is adjacent to the small fishing port in Cros-de-Cagnes. Rémi Pesce’s (1930 – ) “Poisson Lunaire,”  a 1996 bronze fish with a blue patina is totally at home in the sheltered port. Of course, this solitary fish is in good company as there’s a shoal of fish further along the promenade.

A much larger plaster version of the sculpture can be found on one of the roundabouts in La Colle sur Loup.

Rémi Pesce was born in 1930 in Aubreville in the Meuse though he now lives and works in Saint-Paul de Vence. He started his self-taught artistic career with paintings but meetings with sculptors Arman and César in 1973 inspired a change of direction.

This challenge is kindly hosted by Susan Kelly over at No Fixed Plans.
