I find this gentle and graceful position that reveals the buxom buttocks of a female model and large remained rather thin. The curvature of the spine touch me a lot: it reveals a multitude of curves and highlights its facets with light, while the body of the woman is in a position that hides almost half. By modeling this curve, I thought about the hesitant or greedy hand will be emboldened to realize, eyes closed, a long caress the coldness and heat of bronze up to thrill the skin. But please, when you have installed the sculpture at home, look, caress her, pamper her, listen to my poem but, please .... Geralda not wake up, she's in her world .... Plunged into her internal world Deprived of its attires Geralda, quiet and serene Offer her body to the looks Under the ocean of its curves Her thoughts wander Touch her generous breasts Sneak between her plentiful folds Eyes devour her Hands become bolder Skins shiver For her and for all eternity.

I am a self taught artist. My workshop is located in Viroflay at 3kms before the Château de Versailles coming from Paris. You can come and see me by making an appointment by email or phone My artistic approach is driven by the desire to identify the nature of curves particularly those of the female body in positions where the run-up, esthetics and the sweetness lead to emotions. Attracted by the curves, my hands glide over the ground to form bodies taking pleasure in this kneading and shaping the earth particularly flexible and firm at this early stage of the development of the work. I love that once the finished sculpture in bronze you enjoy the caress to feel this body sensuality as I experienced during modeling. I am a "young" sculptor who undertook a second life as an artist after a long career at a major bank in France. Christian Candelier: born in the middle of the twentieth century, he has always walked the exhibitions and buried in him an artist's soul. After having acquired a solid formation in sculpture, he is moved by the body of women and begins to represent them in what they possess most beautiful and most generous. Very quickly, he makes a prayer to motherhood, perfection and femininity, taking the universal way of admiring glance. If it is part of the tradition, it also dares more contemporary touches, leaving all the latitude to the strength of the imagination and the power of the gesture. Lauranne Corneau, art critic and lecturer of major exhibitions in Paris, talks about how she felt in the artistic approach of Christian Candelier: “…."... Student in the spotlight models parading at the discretion of the working sessions, the artist leaves emerge quickly his favorite theme: the eternal feminine. His whole work seems to explore the delicacies of the female body, discussed in terms of curves, run-up, twists ... " “…It is also sometimes by exaggerating the qualities of the model, either real or photographed, he manage to decant the real. The artist stretches, subtracts, refines, stretches ... .. camber, backwards, balance work, pushes the material to its limits and seems to defy the laws of gravity ... ..
