Catherine Gontier is an artist living in north-west France.
We first saw her work - a truly beautiful wire shoe - displayed in an apartment we were staying in in the Marais area in Paris in 2011. We have admired her work ever since and we are now very proud to be able to sell her work through La Brocante.
The Curieuse Galerie describes Catherine's work as follows: "Catherine handles wire like one would handle a pencil. Smooth, airy lines, with magical and surprising results: a hanging 3D drawing with raw sensitivity. Although her inspiration comes from both nature and everyday objects, she sticks with their essential lines. Our eyes follow this moving wire, embodied by an energy of its own which coils, twists and tries to find its balance in the asymmetry of shapes."
