Carved in white Carrara marble and stone with green and gray ripples, the French artist’s sleek renditions of Aphrodite, Laocoön, and Venus appear to have warped, glitched, or transformed into a tight spiral.

Caillard has several exhibitions planned for the next months. You can follow his news and see new works as well as information about them on his website. Instagram.
