As a self-taught artist, Réjane Le Chat knows how to juggle her passion for sculpture and her different professions. Highly interested in forms, her works are emotional and linked to the human condition.
Without wanting to restore their exact proportions, Réjane Le Chat relies on the shapes of individuals. She draws inspiration from human paradoxes and emotions which inevitably creates a feeling of intimacy.
The artist looks beyond the visible and finds a balance between the contrasting ideas of strength and sensitivity.
Réjane Le Chat combines glass, bronze, stone and steel in her works. These materials allow for the artist to play with the shapes of her works. Though each has its own limits and constraints, when combined, the possibilities are endless.
Through the use of varied material, Le Chat hopes to transmit and share her vision of what it is to be human. She seeks to make emotions palpable and evoke a sense of togetherness amongst those who view her work.
In sculpture, Réjane is self-taught. When she is interested in a style or a material, she looks for a tutor and then it is her personal work, her imagination, her research that guides her. After having been a hairdresser and clinical psychologist, sculpture is her only activity since 2014.
