Artwork of the Day: Concrete, Nathalie Decoster
Today’s Artwork of the Day is “Concrete” (40 x 40, inox and bronze), by sculptor Nathalie Decoster. Nathalie will be exhibiting at Artexpo New York 2011.
Nathalie Decoster has lived and worked in Paris, France, since 1985. She uses recycled materials to create her sculptures, which are peopled with bronze figures that tell “universal philosophical and/or humorous tales.”
A humanitarian as well as an artist, Nathalie is a strong supporter in the fight against AIDS. Recently, she created and donated a sculpture to participate in UNESCO’s “I Love You Positive or Negative” campaign. The piece was a red, bronze figure suspended in a giant glass tube.
Nathalie also lends her artistic support on an ongoing basis to the sick children in Robert Debré Hospital & and to the very young children of “Paris Tout-Petits,” an organization that helps families in great need.
Nathalie Decoster currently works with bronze, aluminium, stainless steel, concrete & glass, often incorporating her “faithful messenger” symbol, the inspiring little figure seen in the sculpture above.
