Valérie Hadida is a contemporary French sculptor & painter, working mainly in Bronze & clay. This set of sculptures is from Les “petites bonnes femmes”/ The Little Women series, which has been described by critics as a “poetic encounter….[meant] to make us travel the path of women from adolescence to maturity and through the various emotions and moods that drive these generations of women.”
Trained at l’Ecole d’arts plastiques et publicité de la ville de Paris (EMSAT) and employed in the studio of Marielle POLSKA for 6 years, a character designer for several animated features and winner of the Paul Ricard Foundation Prize in 1991, she has been EXHIBITED in galleries since 1990.
Showing currently at @GalryVerneuil this January.
May her art inspire your writing path for the week!
