FANNY RICHARD




I’m a visual artist working mainly with ceramic.
I’m just trying to undertsand the mystery of life.


“Fanny Richard returns with force to sculpture. Today she is committed to treating the face as a body fragment but above all as a symbol of identity and as a privileged space for emotional manifestations. The face incarnates the particular in the universal and gives to see the emotions which either cross successively an individual, or result from different experiences. Through the theme of the face, Fanny Richard is interested in the determinisms (socio-political, environmental ...) that shape the temperaments and expressions of each person. She expresses this variable through the material itself, by premeditating conflicting relationships (black stoneware and porcelain, engobes under or over glaze) that inevitably lead to cracks, gaps, expected, tamed and accentuated. Sometimes, the modelled face is turned over to reveal to the gaze of the other the mise en abîme of a deep intimacy, in all transparency and vulnerability. Often, threads, wefts, grids, fragile, tangled and irregular, always assimilated to the link or to his desire, come to embellish these unique ovals. Fanny Richard thus pursues the experimental path that has always guided her.”
