Sculptures in the gardens
For the summer 2017, some of the amazing wire mesh sculptures of Pauline Ohrel will be presented in the gardens of the Saint James Paris. Living and working in Paris, Pauline Ohrel has been obsessed with the observation and thinking of others. She is driven to sculpt, transfigure and dignify every material she works with.
Her characters follow the strength of her emotions and feelings in vertical and metaphysical movement, fed by pure energy. She is the sculptress of sensitivity.
Having worked conventional materials such as bronze, stone, plaster, wax, for several years with success, she now focuses on working wire mesh, giving this material an astonishing nobility.
The reverse perspective brought by the projection in space of forms in motion games and the anamorphy offered by the transparency of the matter lead to a unique balance between volume and lightness, transparency and consistency, representation and evocation.
“In my recent work on wire, I explore the boundaries of design and volume. The ambiguity due to transparency of the material, playing on the perspectives and perceptions, suggests or erases the envelope.”
