I've recently started a silversmith course and so I'm finding my attention is captured more and more by artists who utilise metals in interesting ways. The whimsical fine constructions of Isabelle Bonte are a real treat for the way she approaches her work but also for her inspirational application of paper to this process. Visit her website to see more of her fabulous work and (with the help of the translating facility) read some of her poetic artist statements. Just to share one of these:
Understanding of space
Always light the paper between the lines
Design of volumes and surfaces. The light and dark.
Light is vital, the line helps to define it.
A question of pace.
Do not say everything, create the key, and suggest the rest.
They really do add poignancy to her pieces, don't you think? I love it. Hope you've had a lovely weekend :)
