TOULOUSE (31), France
Since her first steps in sculpture, Marie Ange Pol has sculpted wood and marble to extract roundness, voluptuous forms that tell the story of people, life, dreams... No need for details, the line is pure; without detours or artifice, it is the attitudes and the material that speak. Also her women are round, sensual and especially generous by the softness and the plenitude which they release.
Always in this same research, she then approached the theme that she calls "the recreational" where she walks in the playful world of childhood. With a more humorous look, sometimes more caustic, through the exaggeration of a detail or a situation. She presents, among other things, cherubs with round bellies and bouncy buttocks, climbing improbable obstacles, little girls and boys who take a bite out of life and look at the world from the height of their carefree spirit.
Following this human exploration, she also became interested in plants, inspired by nature, which is her daily environment, and its different stages of evolution. When she sculpts a fruit, a seed, a pod, there again it is a question of underlining the purity of its line, the harmony of its curves, while respecting the sobriety or the complexity of its form. Only the size changes and sometimes the patina, which gives her subjects a new visibility and makes the public wonder about their own environment and their knowledge of it.
Marie Ange Pol discovered sculpture almost forty years ago with an artist who graduated from the Ecole Boule. She did about ten training courses with this sculptor who introduced her to modelling and moulding, then to sculpture on wood, stone and marble and finally to art casting.
She then continued to practice as a self-taught artist and perfected her skills in finishing patinas. Since 1985, she has been teaching woodcarving (which remains her favourite practice) to adults in weekly classes in the MJC and in workshops held directly in her studio.
