"Trois Femmes, Esprit & Matière" by Britta Brand

Trois Femmes Esprit MatiereWe are three women from three different countries who live in the same village near Uzès. Nathalie Dewilde – a Belgian sculptor & painter, Cristelle Berberian – a French sculptor/ceramicist and myself Britta Brand a German Goldsmith. We are organising an exhibition together where each artist displays their favourite medium, metal, clay and stone to create a complimentary fusion.

 

I am a jewellery designer and moved with my family from London to the South of France 16 years ago, trading London’s busy life for a slower and more mindful lifestyle. My designs are carefully and meticulously handcrafted in silver & gold. My latest work focuses on organic forms, sculptural shapes and textures inspired by my natural environment. I concentrate on small and limited collections and one-off bespoke pieces.

 

Cristelle Berberian moved from Paris to Vers-Pont-du- Gard, looking for the light; Cristelle and her husband came here by chance and never left. They both now run a gallery together showing photography, paintings and ceramics in Vers- Pont-du-Gard.

 

Nathalie Dewilde is a trained interior designer who discovered her passion for ceramics at l’Académie des Beaux-Arts in Braine-l’Alleud. She likes working the brute aspect of raku and terre enfumée. Nathalie now works with recycled materials and uses layers of natural pigments in her paintings which give them depth and texture to create a very natural and earthy impression.

 

The exhibition will be held 1st - 14th July - 10 am – 8 pm at the Gallery  "La Verrière" 8 rue du Docteur Blanchard in 30700 Uzès
