Daniel CHASSIN’s creations are unique because, they combine on a first hand brass and bronze and on the other hand satin and polished. Lines are simplified in this sculpture to get to the point and represent these animals with grace and magnificence. Furthermore, he favors global form despite of detail’s work. These animals, like this eagle that seems near to take flight, are impregnated by artist’s point of view and feelings that are translated in matter and in his choice of the instant represented. The artist expresses a realistic sober choice whose movement and dynamism are essential. Moreover, CHASSIN knows how to attach abstract and natural details because we can note some matter and color differences that beautify each surface in many points of view. Opposites link together and marry marvelously.
