    Daniel Dewar was born in 1976 in the Forest of Dean, in the United Kingdom. Grégory Gicquel was born in 1975 in Saint-Brieuc. In the sculptural ensemble Nudes, for the first time the artists have chosen to employ a luxurious type of stone originating far from their studio in Brittany, a Portuguese pink marble, also known as Rosa Aurora. This esh-coloured decorative marble, mainly used in bathrooms, has the softness of skin when it is polished. The sculptures take the form of two high reliefs, each representing shower scenes with body fragments (a leg, a penis, a hand) and various bathroom accessories (a shower head, a soap dish), almost on a 1:1 scale. The similarity between the stone chosen and the motifs represented lends sensuality and multiple erotic connotations to these sculptures.
