Artist review: Aude-Marie Franjou
Aude-Marie Franjou is a fiber artist based in Château Landon, a small town nearby Paris. Aude studied Art History and Tapestry in Paris, before starting exploring the sculptural possibilities of linen threads and ropes.
Artist in her studio
Aude Franjou creates organic tri-dimensional forms, made of hemp fiber wrapped with linen threads, which are often a part of a open dialogue with Nature. Her works can normally be found in parks and gardens, wrapping trees and houses.
” I start with a clear idea and then I just follow and react to what the material wants, to its reactions and movements. Sometimes I constrain this. Other times I just let myself go.”
(translated from artist statement in http://lesgrigrisdesophie.blogspot.com)
And sometimes, as super organic forms indoors..
