Zen, Cool, Libre, Vénus, Harmonie… Many names given by Sylvie to her slender bronzes that seduce us at first sight.
Nudes and animals has directly been her inspiration. Her creations presents lightness, delicacy and elegance. Their lines’ purity reveals an authentic balance. Some are about to leap, others to dive, some run to love, others satisfy themselves walking with simplicity and verticality. They are strong and delicate at the same time.
Sylvie Mangaud’s sculptures are also an on purpose disproportion. It makes the whole harmonious : legs rising to infinity, combining lines’ length and curves’ softness. The faces stay smooth, leaving the bodies speaking, sensual but never immodest.
One cannot deny : we can’t imagine their silhouettes differently.
