Artist Statement of Paul Gervis

His sculptures combine realism, Comedy and sensuality, and inspired by Manet`s Dejeurner sur l`herbe his mean are clothed and his woman and children most often naked. They are also "alive". Far from posing elegantly on a pedestal in art school poses, they are flirting, arguing, drinking, and the children are cycling, swinging on tyres or fishing
