Pierre Yermia develops for almost thirty years a singular work made of human and animal figures.  His production is a constant strive to moments of precarious and unlikely balance, where strength and fragility simultaneously confront.  His figures challenge the gravity laws. Their shapes are elongated and the frail limbs contrast with the heavy chests. The heads, reduced to the essential, culminate on long slender necks.  Yermia’s work reminds sometimes to Giacometti’s. Like him, he depicts through spindly and emaciated figures a vulnerable and endangered humanity, but his undertone is serener, more confident in human’s future.  Yermia also produces on-demand monumental pieces for public places and private gardens. Pierre Yermia was born in 1964 at Suresnes (France).  He studied at the Academies of Toulouse (1982-84) and Paris (1984-88). Today he lives and works at Charenton-le-Pont nearby Paris.  Yermia participated in a multitude of exhibitions all over France, but also in UK, the United States and The Netherlands.
