Modern and Contemporary Art
This solo exhibition features bronze sculptures made by Gaud, a French female artist. Her present work depicts how the use of photo cameras may modify people’s attitudes when being photographed. From the 20th century to nowadays, the increasing use of personal cameras followed by the connected devices explosion, have marked a turning point in the way how people take pictures. Gaud has created a unique artistic way of translating photography into sculpture.
Gaud has lived in Europe and is now living in Hong Kong. She has painted and sculpted live models since 2008. She is currently developing sculptural projects interconnected with photography and its impact on people.
Gaud mainly works with clay and mixed media. She favours a rough and spontaneous finish, which adds vibration to her work and naturally leaves a clear imprint of life. Her bronze sculptures are produced at renowned French and Chinese bronze foundries.
She has attended intensive workshops and continuing trainings in French Art Schools such as l’Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, les Ateliers des Arts Décoratifs, and private studios in Paris. She has been a hirer of the Hong Kong Visual Art Centre for two years. She has exhibited in Italy and Hong Kong and her works have been bought by collectors living all around the world.
