Exhibition "Citizens of the World" and "Patchwork of Kimonos".
My artistic approach : Through the creation of characters I seek to highlight the richness of cultures, the diversity of its expression and the similarities related to the personal or societal difficulties that we all have to face. Our breaks, our fractures beautify us, strengthen us, differentiate us and bring us together. We are all different in appearance and yet so close to our humanity ...
Very characteristic, my inspired characters are halfway between realism and impressionism. They are modeled in different lands, porcelains or sandstone. My choices about proportions, tones, patterns and costumes are essentially aesthetic. The costumes are assembled in wire which gives them a certain lightness and an obvious personality. The expressive heads of each character reinforce the presence of each of them and refer to a duality that oscillates between fragility and seduction.
The preferred medium for my work is porcelain, for its whiteness, but I also work black sandstone and white sandstone.
I decline these lands in different techniques:
- I create unique characters to hang and I associate porcelain, metal and glass,
- The porcelain is then decorated with graphics, enamelled and worked flat. The heads are in volume, their expression is individualized and directly in agreement with the "costume" and the personality that appears.
- Some characters have black heads, they are more ethnic and treated in "Raku".
- They have "trades" you will come across in this exhibition "The Moon Maker", "The Flower Woman", "A Peddler", "An Acrobat", "A Mermaid", "A Geisha" and many more ...
