Since 1991, Daniel Hourdé fashions muscular body reminiscent skinned used in anatomy or drawing. Performed by models, bronze sculptures come from an academic tradition that seeks to disrupt constantly. (Cherry Gallery).Hourde's work illustrates a form of mortallity and the perspective of good and bad. In the above picture the Frame and the body that is sculpted in red shows the soul leaving the physical body dead or unuseful.
The relationship between the theme and this art work is the darkness with the bitter sweet meaning of life.
