This artistic project as a whole is committed to exploring the volume in stained glass. This volumetric research associates other materials and techniques (blown glass, engraving on glass and metal). Four pieces are to date made : Sculpture ‘Déracinement’, including wooden stained glass window in view of migration in Europe; The Mother-Woman series, combined with a stained glass window and a sculpture. Together they tell a story of liberation in which the duality of MOTHER WOMAN reveals itself and pushes the limits of the technique of traditional stained glass to create a three-dimensional work. Recentaly was rewarded with the prize of Environnemental Art in the historical exhibition of Salon d’Automne in Paris.The fourth, MADONA a sculpture of the mother.
Technique: drawing in mixed media on paper, sketch paper for stained glass, three-dimensional models of earth and cardboard, welding of pieces of glass and sheets of copper.
A research on the subject of maternity is at the origin of the project MOTHER WOMAN, and can be viewed on the site. These drawings, due to their structure with ink, lend themselves well to an adaptation in stained glass, the ink being translated intuitively in welding.
To develop an artistic perspective around the working methodology, a photographic documentation accompanies the project with Christine Noel and myself.
