Nautilus. Gilded bronze and aged silver. Creation Régis Mathieu. Nautilus, standing frozen in a flash of its own making, is a breathtaking jellyfish. This luminous sculpture, suspended in the air, appears to us, afloat in an imaginary sea. Its overhead lighting highlights its body and casts captivating shadows. The backlight coming from the dome creates a soft glow that reveals the magic of the sculpted details. This sculpted work of Régis Mathieu evokes the fascinating journey of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, where came to life the many mysteries of our seas. Captain Nemo’s name resonates, recalling the extraordinary adventures of Jules Verne. Antique bronze work serves as the foundation for this piece, a craftsmanship inherited from the master craftsmen of the 19th century. The meticulously applied gilding and aged silver bring the mollusk to life, revealing even the smallest details of its delicate tentacles. It is a tribute to the ornamental grammars of the time, where art and craftsmanship combined to create works of unparalleled beauty.
Nautilus. Bronze doré et argent vieilli. Création Régis Mathieu. Nautilus est une méduse comme figée par le flash de sa propre lumière. Cette sculpture lumineuse, suspendue dans l'air, semble flotter comme un organisme marin dans une mer imaginaire. L'éclairage zénithal, venant d'en haut, met en valeur la méduse et projette des ombres envoûtantes. Le rétro-éclairage, provenant de la coupole, crée une lueur douce qui révèle la magie des détails sculptés. L’oeuvre sculptée de Régis Mathieu évoque un voyage fascinant, à vingt-mille lieues sous les mers, là où les mystères des profondeurs marines prennent vie. Le nom du Capitaine Nemo résonne en écho, rappelant les aventures extraordinaires de Jules Verne. Le travail du bronze ancestral sert de fondation à cette pièce, une technique héritée des maîtres artisans du XIXème siècle. La dorure et l'argenture, minutieusement appliquées, donnent véritablement vie au mollusque, révélant les moindres détails de ses tentacules délicats. C'est un hommage aux grammaires ornemanistes de l'époque, où l'art et l'artisanat se mariaient pour créer des œuvres d'une beauté inégalée.
