Originally from Lille, Diane is one of those people who has always paid very particular attention to the world that surrounds her. Seeking both to understand its organisation and the way it works, as well as to capture its essence, she has a singular and informed view of all the subjects she studies, both in her scientific work and in the production of her works. Diane followed a path to university that led her to specialise in human anatomy, especially through the study of great apes. At the same time, she founded a theatre group, made acrylic and wax paintings and tried sculpture. Her passion for animal and human morphology led her to become more and more interested in modelling techniques, which she discovered after training in painting live models at the School of Fine Arts in Paris. In 2010, Diane decided to concentrate her expertise in the execution of her creations in volume. “To create, model, shape, make sense of the shape by transforming the material: that is her mission.” From sculptures made from ceramic or wax or cut in polystyrene, the sculptor designs works in bronze, resin or concrete. Her subjects, handled geometrically and styled in a boldly contemporary style, are tinged with gentleness, while giving off an energy that could be described as “vitalism”.
