Charlotte de Charentenay (b1976) graduated from the University of Lyon II in France with a BA in Art History in 1997. She first learned Sculpture at Les Beaux Arts during evening classes, which she took in parallel with her university studies.  She furthered her education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 2011-12.  A move to Hong Kong in 2013 brought the opportunity to discover the art of Ceramics with which Charlotte is particularly fascinated. She was involved with The Sprouts Foundation programs to help children through art, by running weekly Ceramics workshops.

 

Now living in Singapore, Charlotte de Charentenay finds serenity in nature. For her, sculpting is like writing a feeling or drawing an emotion, where gentleness, frailty and strength awaken one’s senses.

Charlotte视雕塑为一种把情感与知觉幻化为语言与图像的一种能力,能够以平滑,凸凹,流畅以及女性化来唤醒感知。她从人性中汲取灵感,并认为忠于自我,勇于表达欲望和情感的女性最为美丽。这一系列作品均以陶土塑性,邀请参观者踏上一场感官之旅,发散思维来遨游于亦梦亦幻的想象力之中。
