Hélène Laplante

A Natural Presence

Forms, Volume and Space

Artist Hélène Laplante’s animal sculptures are not mere portrayals of their flesh and hair counterparts. Made of white resin with vaporous outlines, they evoke their furtive, almost ghostly presence in wild surroundings that are their natural habitats. The multidisciplinary artist thus seeks to give expression to the animal spirit, through the use of inert material.

Carpe Diem

Nicole Taillon’s Mantra

Forms, Volume and Space

Time – a precious resource if ever there was one! It slips through the fingers of some while others have too much of it on their hands. And yet, we all share a fleeting existence in this world where technology is meant to save us time while, paradoxically, Man has never lacked so much of it, has never seemed so out-of-breath, so hurried.

THUIR (Catalonia, France), Winter 2011

The tramontana, that gale force wind from the Pyrénées, is fiercely blowing on the old town. In a corner of the city square, I am waiting for my husband, somewhat protected from the wind behind a bronze sculpture that is round, warm and maternal, next to a palm tree.

A little further on this same grassed area, next to an olive tree; a second bronze sculpture faces the first, powerful and imposing, representing Saint George overcoming the Dragon. Sant Jordi, the illustrious patron saint of Catalonia from South to North. I look for a signature to no avail, finding only initials. After investigation, I finally learn the name of the creator of these two superb bronze sculptures: Rosa Serra. As days go by, the intensity of the moment I experienced between these two sculptures fades away.

When Forms are Shaped through Sentiment

Forms, Volume and Space

“We must content ourselves to discover and never try to explain.” Georges Braque.

Bronze is a traditional material of ancient heritage. It is a preferred medium of sculptors due to the feasibility of juxtaposing in one élan sparkling smooth surfaces and textured details of minute finesse. This being said, the present day volition to produce artworks in bronze is interesting as it testifies to how perfectly this material can be adapted to contemporary expressions.
