Clémentine Bal is a visual artist living in Val-Revermont. She was born in Paris, grew up in Savoie and graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Annecy.
She uses sculpture to create imaginary characters, mixing shapes observed in nature. The clean lines of these creatures, as well as their meditative expressions and delicate postures give them a lot of softness.
Clémentine imagines spirits in everything, so faces can appear on volcanoes, objects or plants. Inert material comes to life, layer after layer.
These characters evoke the manga universe, the creatures of Miyazaki, traditional Japanese statuary, like little deities, gentle and sensitive.
