A portrait of the Faroese sculptor Hans Pauli Olsen.
The film follows the creation of Hans Pauli Olsen's biggest sculpture so far. We take part in the process when the artist is working in his backyard studio together with his young nude model. We are the fly on the wall, when the artist forgets about the camera and exists only for creating his art with his bare hands. And we experience the contrast between art as subtle, exhibited works in distinguished halls of art and as a simple lump of clay in a dirty garage.
Hans Pauli Olsen, born in 1957 in TÃ³rshavn, Faroe Islands. He often uses classic materials such as granite, plaster and bronze in his works and has developed a special figurative way of expression with the human figure as the principal element.
