Pascal creates an extraordinary range of abstract meditations that seem to arise directly from the medium itself, rather than from a conscious plan. He has an extraordinary rapport with his materials, concocting his own varnishes and resins as well as creating bronze-like patinas on non-metallic surfaces. He works with a variety of precious woods and creates sculptures that express the texture, aroma, and strength of each.
"I enjoy questions more than answers; that is where my obsession to create begins… Scientists say water has memory, I think wood has memory too; because of its individuality, its smell, its temperature, its origin. Wood is strong, smart, full of character and unexpected.” -
His contemporary wall sculptures have been exhibited in over 150 national and international art galleries since 1990; in addition to permanent public and private commissions, and corporate collections throughout the world.
