Canadian Sculptures' Society

Bastien Martel

Artist Statement
In the beginning there was a need. A need to communicate, exchange ideas and to make contact. A need to escape the loneliness of being. I do not seek innovation. I am following my path. I am continuing my journey of self-dicovery. I'm inviting you to share with me your thoughts, ideas and desires. I'm hoping that you will have as much pleasure looking, reading, and understanding these artworks as I have in creating them.
