Contemporary Ceramics Centre : Sophie Favre - Zoo intime
Preview Evening: Wednesday 19th September 6 - 8PM
Leaving a previous life as a graphic designer behind, artist Sophie Favre now works at her studio in Draveil, 20 km from Paris. Her figurative sculptures are translations of human emotions; our doubts, our state of being. The emotive characters find inspiration from Flemish Masters, comic books and personal acquaintances, but for all their fantastical imagery, they speak of the ordinary lives and ordinary feelings of the human condition. Inhabiting both poignancy and a sense of humour, the faces and gestures of Sophie's characters express everything that it means to be human, inclusive of all its fragilities and illusions.
