FABRE Christine, terracotta and bronze sculpture, Permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since1990

“The Path of metamorphosis

Now I am rediscovering the skin of the clay. No longer wishing to cover its surface with glaze, I have stripped it bare. Naked, it sends me back to a rupturing, fissuring world. Accompanied by only, perhaps, a few obstinate guardians. The presence of the animal, vegetal and human elements protect us like a shield of which we must be aware to avoid chaos.

I work on the clay: "I am its plasticity, its fragility". Bronze forces me into a physical confrontation: the strength of the metal. From the beginning I have sensed an almost indestructible force. Does it perhaps come from myself?. The barely perceived path that I must still seek leads me towards new metamorphose to glass. By melting, the transformation from the organic to the mineral, the liquid to the solid, the opaque to the transparent haunt me to the point of presentiment. The dialogue between these materials, their resonance, is not a confrontation but a search for harmony: as if seemingly different worlds were suddently to realise that they all came from the same magma and that they are here to play from the same score, the opera of the world”.
Christine Fabre

“Yes, Christine Fabre's works restore of the sense, some contents and the legitimacy of the use of the word Beauty. They contribute to the necessary restoration of the eternal and universal aesthetic values, by their exemplary re-registration of the art in the sensualism, in the immediate obvious fact, and, there, in the tangible and deep reality of the human being.

By their timeless purity and nobility, they arouse in the looks that they inhale, the same fascination and the same respect, who were experienced everywhere and of any times, for liturgical objects. They are moments of communion between men for the sharing of the same delight”.
Pierre Souchaud
