The title "L'ALBATROS" is a tribute to Baudelaire's poem.

The bird of Baudelaire as soon as it is on the ground is "left and veule", its large wings prevent it from moving:

"The Poet is like the prince of the clouds Who haunts the storm and laughs at the archer; Exiled on the ground amidst the hooting, His giant wings prevent him from walking."

The sculpture represents humanity, which, with disproportionate legs, has a hard time getting up.

The artist stages human fragility. The form reaches for its uncertain future, arms open in a welcoming or waiting position.

Enjoy the beauty of the stretched limbs, representing the fragility of each of us.

The sculpture is made of lost wax bronze. Signed and numbered on 8 proofs. The patina is quite contemporary and beautiful with blue reflections in the hollows and green on the chips of the bronze.

The sculpture is unique.

Man in his emotions and his relationship with others is at the center of Catherine Villa's concerns.

A psychologist in her previous life, the time spent caring for souls has left its mark. Looking at these miraculously emerged forms, one stands still.
This image appearing in the light is Us.

"I am attracted to what cannot be seen, so I paint and sculpt emotions, moments of separation, crowds that move and seek each other, bonds that are made and broken. I put humanity back at the center of everything. Catherine Villa

What emotions inhabit us? And what do we do with them? It is time to watch ourselves live. Close to everyone, Catherine literally integrates us into her work. Her characters are always in life, always in question, always waiting. They are walking towards an uncertain future, in balance but actors of their history.

After her research in art therapy, after practicing watercolor for 10 years and then oil painting, the artist has been working since 2012 with clay and bronze, in particular with the Delmas foundry, the official foundry of Camille Claudel's works.
