Importance of living in the moment T without being polluted by the past or the future.
It is inspired by a photograph by Robert Doineau.
It is made of bronze with the so-called "lost wax" technique, in partnership with the ADOBATI art foundry, located in Drôme.
This foundry is certified, it works with a quality alloy with a high copper content. Tin bronzes contain more than 85% copper.
Each work is engraved with the stamp of the foundry, number of the work and signature of the sculptor.
Excerpt from the code of ethics for art foundries:
“When it is produced under the name of “original”, any work of art in bronze can only be produced, according to current regulations, in a maximum number of 12 copies.
Among these originals, 4, called "artist's proof", must be numbered EA I/IV, EA II/IV, EA III/IV, EA IV/IV, in Roman numerals.
The other 8 will be numbered 1/8, 2/8 etc… in Arabic numerals”. Formerly the foundries gave the 4 artists' proofs to the artist (EA I/IV etc...) while they kept the first 8 proofs (1/8 etc...)
Here is a poem written for this sculpture:
Dive the nose
Inside a bowl
The greedy child
So much this sin
who went to school
Undo the knots
In the exquisite hour
Sophie Barut is a contemporary French sculptor. She makes bronzes using the "lost wax" technique, in partnership with the Adobati foundry (Drôme). Her work frequently explores topics such as fragility, childhood, balance in life, handicap, the vital force hidden at the bottom of each one, the beauty of friendship and love. She defines herself as the sculptor of fragility, considering that her artistic fragility is essential in this world where omnipotence prevails.
Sophie Barut was born in 1972, in France, where she got her Diplôme des Arts Appliqués de la ville de Lyon; Diploma in interior architecture from the School of Applied Arts in Lyon and finished Sculpture course with the Lyon sculptor Marc Saint Pierre.
