Half figurative, half abstract, his art travels between the two. Faces, bodies, sensations, movements, rhythms are born in the curves and the loose lines. In this ballet of sensations, sometimes mythological creatures emerge, summoning allegories and memories, inviting the viewer to enter the dance.
Creating living forms, in search of harmony
When Laure Polin sculpts, she perceives the space her works will have to take possession of. She does not shape her works from the outside, as a stone can be attacked by the chisel, but rather she shapes them in the very depths of their intimacy.
She does not perceive a difference between an abstract and a figurative form. Whether she creates a bust, or an abstract sculpture inspired by an interior model, Laure Polin simply seeks to create living forms.
A living form is a form in impulse, full, tenuous, which establishes a sound relationship with another form. A sculpture is a set of volumes that echo and hear each other. From this agreement must be born harmony. Her sculpture belongs to the field of discovery. When she sculpts, she does not seek to reproduce a pre-established form but constructs a form that illustrates the feeling she carries.
An intuitive plastic path
In the beginning, it is indecision: the open field of so many possibilities. Indecision leads to research: Laure Polin looks for a trace, an imprint, a mark, a memory in the material, a clue... She cuts, sands, shakes the material. Then something appears: a tiny detail sometimes, like an echo or on the contrary like a call. She recognizes an eye, a back, a vertebra, the outline of a bone structure, a construction, a movement...
In reality, Laure Polin recognizes the beginning of a soul (of her soul?), the beginning of a structure, the beginning of a work. Then the sculpture takes a form. The one she was wearing without knowing it? The one that was buried in the material? No matter, it will be the one that emerges from all her sensations of the present moment.
