Nicolas Sanhes studied at the Perpignan School of Fine Arts in France. After creating his first wooden sculpture, his preferred material became metal, and for a few years now more precisely the metal beams used in the construction of frames: a standardized and industrial material called IPN. The artist saws, assembles and welds these metal lines, works on the tensions, the notions of balance and imbalance, in order to give birth to works of an astonishing lightness, in spite of their often monumental quality. For the work is not limited to a constantly renewed declination of metal linear structures, always monochromic. The work is also space itself: the interior space, the void encompassed in the created structure, and the space in which the work exists.
