Georges Castille, painter, sculptor, plastic artist, over time and since always, comes out of his imagination new forms, new sensibilities. Femininity is an essential and inexhaustible source for him. His works burst with the pleasure of life that he wants to transmit to everyone. He suggests without ever imposing, inviting us to enter his magical world.
His polychrome, relief-carved wooden paintings, entirely hand-made, are composed of several puzzle-like pieces. The ceramic effect obtained by an alchemy of materials, enhances the relief and the movement on each of her works. Her polychrome sculptures with pure and harmonious lines, with voluptuous shapes catch the eye and call for a caress. The shimmering colours sublimate them.
Wood, a living and noble material, is transformed in the artist's hands. The work is soft and warm to the eye. Each piece is unique, the wood shavings fly under the gouge guided by the artist's skilful hand, who perfectly masters each gesture. The wood becomes a sketch, then a work of art.
Georges Castille is a native of Dijon. He introduces us to "Rosé de Bourgogne" marble and offers us sculptures with skilfully refined lines. The material is hard to work, the chisel makes the stone chips jump, time does not count, the artist plays with the difficulties.
As the days go by, the shapes appear, the lines and curves take shape. Then begins a long and meticulous work, the riffle, the gradine, the spur, the ognette enter in scene to dig, scrape, round. Then comes the turn of the sandpaper and finally the carborundum powder, for the ultimate smooth finish that is perfect to the touch, calling for a caress.
Sculpting, shaping, painting on a wall, bringing Art to the street, many Artists have already done it, do it and will always do it because they like to share.
To own a wall, to let one's imagination wander on this unusual space, then to create a unique work that attracts the eye and challenges the passer-by, that is Georges Castille's pleasure. He likes long-term tasks. The size of the work to be created is a challenge, a new challenge.
Art is his Life and he devotes all his time to it. From a very young age he has painted on canvas. He still uses this medium from time to time; but these achievements do not bring him satisfactory creativity. His pleasure lies in innovation, research and technique, again and again, and he keeps coming back to it.
He presents his creations in France, New York and Beijing.
