Irvin Pascal uses a multidisciplinary approach to his works. Aiming to dissolve the traditional division between painting and sculpture, Pascal has developed his own material: Pascollar. It can be formed like clay or plaster, but it surpasses these materials in stability, durability, and value. Furthermore, unlike metal, which is subject to the influence of a foundry, Pascollar is shaped by the artist’s hand alone. Pascal’s sculptures have their own ‘signature style’, akin to the individual brushstrokes on a painting that reveal the identity of the master. The versatility of Pascollar is even demonstrated in the medium of painting. He thus ultimately opens a new dialogue between his two and three-dimensional works.
