The work is part of a series between abstraction and figuration that seeks, through pure lines, to return to pure emotions and a form of primitivism. Its patina, which is both mineral and slightly coloured, gives it a mineral and authentic aspect.

The claywork at the heart of Sophie Bocher's sculptures is a reminder of the essential connection between humankind and the earth. Her aim is to return to a sort of primitivism in which emotion is expressed in its most pure and authentic form.

A meeting of sculptural form and raw emotion

Sophie Bocher has sculpted for twenty years. Whilst studying painting, drawing and sculpture in Paris’ Fine Art Ateliers for over three years, Bocher learnt, experimented with and defined her own style. Since 2014, her work has been centred on experimenting with materials such as bronze, plaster, cement and sandstone, and exploring their unique properties. She uses sandstone chamotte and concrete for their raw appearance and to give an impression of minerality and bareness.

As an artist, Bocher is influenced by the work of great sculptors like Brancusi and Henry Moore, and Moore’s words ring just as true for her own pieces: "The great, continual, everlasting problem is to combine sculptural form with human sensitivity and meaning, i.e. to try to keep primitive power with humanist content."

Constant balance that shines a spotlight on form

Sophie Bocher's plaster and bronze pieces are smooth and soft, creating a sensation of gentleness, calm and serenity. When there is colour, it serves to highlight the material effects obtained and shine a spotlight on form.

Amongst the different textures, a balance between abstraction and figuration is achieved, bringing the concept of humanity to its essential and universal form. In the more abstract works, balance is often created through the various re-compositions of pieces which are in constant motion, often offering the possibility of modulating different elements of the sculpture.
