A collaboration between Daum and French artist, Marie-Paule Deville Chabrolle.
Chabrolle, a French painter and sculptor, studied at the EcoleÂ des Beaux-Arts in Pau and spent two years in the Phnom-Penh Fine Arts facultyÂ in Cambodia.Â The artistâ€™s approach is a highly personal adventure. Every encounter, every country.Â she has travelled through, every image glimpsed, and every emotion experienced,Â contribute to her creation. Her works are a passionate tribute to grace andÂ femininity. She draws, sculpts and transforms women in bronze, producing curvedÂ figures of expressive gentleness that emanate a sense of contemplation and innerÂ strength. Her works are exhibited in the Galeries Bartoux in Paris, MegÃ¨ve, Cannes,Â London, New York and Singapore.
â€˜â€˜When Daum came into my life, I realized that the light and the elusive colours of theÂ sky were made possible to carve. How could I have resisted? I confided my firstÂ sculptures impatiently to see how my earth, so heavy and full, could have color,Â transparency and lightâ€¦Â It was so beautiful yet so differentâ€¦so began our collaboration. I confided my earthÂ to them, so that alchemy takes place, giving me light and dazzling colors thatÂ cross the sky.Â My wonder still lasts with each new sculpture.â€™â€™Â Marie-Paule Deville-Chabrolle
