CIRINO Nathalie, sculpture

The stone
Feel it, understand it, love it.
Caressing it, softening it, revealing its beauty.
To release the form resting in its interior.
To respect it.


To enter in communication, to dialogue, to exchange.
To make the way together, to listen to each other.
Learning from each other.
To let oneself be carried away.
To travel.


Experimenting with the secrets of stone, of wood.
To combine materials, to make them talk.
Gather their energy.
Singing, dancing.


To seek harmony, complementarity, balance.
Sensuality of my hands, tools on the material.
Initiate oneself to the mysteries of existence.
To give life.

Artistic approach

The true journey is the one man makes inside himself. 

My artistic journey is the result of personal reflection, introspection and communication with the material.
My works, like a journey, approach the cycles, the passages of life; from birth, innocence to the quest for balance, harmony, gentleness and purity, to the desire to dream, to marvel. 

In sculpture, the pure forms reveal the strength and complementarity of the materials. At the same time organic and animal, futuristic and architectural, they make the link between the primitive and the contemporary; modern and timeless at the same time. 

My painting, just as sculpture aspires to simple forms, a re search for materials, transparency, tones in resonance. The volumes are full and dense, like "cocoon-houses", suspended in weightlessness, light and air, between sky and earth, always mobile, ready to land as well as to take off, to travel and to travel to other worlds... 

My search for purity is the will to reveal the essential, the universal, to transmit a message of poetry, to bring sweetness and dream.
