Talking about Dripping in sculpture without falling into a flow of paint on a three-dimensional support seems to be a challenge.
But by observing closely, Philippe melts the metal and it flows drop by drop to give a hazardous shape. The participation of the whole body is present and not just the intellect. Then the paradox can be glimpsed, we feel the curtain raising and it reveals a solution to this alternative.
Dripping, as Pollock was fond of, is access to an unconscious, bodily buried, archetypal memory. An evanescent divine chance brought to light and form.
The classic or abstract interiorized projection then in the sand, frozen in the space of the mold, receives by fusion, liquefaction, the drops one after the other. The loss of mastery and access to another dimension are the key words of the speech, of a communication between the sculpture and the sculptor.
Hollows and bumps, voids and fills, accidents create a play between light and shadow. This lace is a suggestive creation that appeals to the idyllic, chimerical, archetypal, or obscure, black history of each individual. A personal story is regenerated, recomposing the work. It reinvents its own history like an alluvium dragged by the current of the river, of life. It transforms in an infinitesimal or radical way, the individual I of the creator and the spectator into a new revisited.
Our personal history, real or told cognitive memories, is reconstructed with each frozen drop of eternity. But through our eyes, the lace becomes soluble in our personal history which is endless in contrast to the tales of which we know the end. Even death, however uneducable, will not get the better of our personal stories told in private or in broad daylight.
This acquired and specific property of never having an end and the power to take a new detour every second, is the source of individual freedom. All recast cognitive histories are the means of reconstruction of its world, of our world.

Born in 1964, Philippe Buil began his professional life in the metal industry, but after a few years he wanted to combine his three main passions : metals, sculpture and invention.
After several months of research, he has developed a unique technique that allows him to make sculptures in metal lace. His two favorite materials are Bronze and Steel.
He obtains this lace by melting the metal in a drip, this process ensures that all the sculptures are unique pieces.
Since 2019, he has been adding glass parts to his sculptures, using the technique of fusing and thermoforming. The sculptures then play with light and color.
According to his inspirations, he adds other materials such as leather, 24 carat gold leaf, wood….
His favorite subjects are the body, but you can also find animals and other subjects according to his wishes
he regularly conducts public or private commands: lighting the staircase of the municipality of Saint-Etienne, fencing masks for the International Fencing Federation…
He is represented by several galleries in France, Switzerland, Belgium, Canada and the USA.
