The supports alternate and mix, moving from drawing on paper, to oil on canvas or to sculpture, but always with a preference for large format. Philippe Pasqua tackles subversive subjects, he seeks to highlight the stigmata of our society so that our eyes can confront it. For this he will paint the vanities of prostitutes, disabled people with trisomy 21 or blind people, but also transsexuals, all those people that our way of life tends to leave in the margins in order to detach themselves from them.
