Mathilde Martin is a plastician artist from Paris. She works with sandstone without a tower and models. The final product becomes both an artifact and an object of everyday life.
Aesthetics, material, touch are very important in her work, from the manufacturing process to the outcome of the design.
Beating, smoothing, caressing, cutting, pinching, scraping. The elasticity of the earth is her guide. It gives her the freedom to create and allow her to be surprised by the object. It appears under the movement of the hand and the bursts of emotions.
Through this unique process, Mathilde Martin undertakes a reflection on the meaning of the object, its nonsense as well as her senses stimulated during the creative process.
