THE ARTIST 

MDAUTEUIL is a French Canadian who has lived in France for a few years and has now settled in Finland,

 

Since 2006. she associate different elements: bones, glass, soot, snake moults, blood, metals, stones, insects, dried flowers...in short, all natural materials are an inspiration.

 

Her pregnancies impacted on her art: cartesian lines faded and gave way to curves and movement. Her trades as a former jeweler and glassblower combined with studies in psychology have influenced the materials used and their disposal.

Memories in Green

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

Having lived her childhood in the North-Canadian woods, the artistic work of MDAUTEUIL is strongly imbued with an ecological awareness.

 

Remarkably meticulous, her fascinating compositions uniquely combine creation and memory. Each memory is a singular moment in a story: a wedding bouquet, a jewel of a loved one or the bones of a pet offer new feelings in the hands of the artist.

Over time, MDAUTEUIL gleans and collects different materials full of meanings: precious metals, pieces of blown glass, jewelry and even organic materials gathering leaves, mushrooms and fish skins.

Wood and stainless steel will then serve as supports for her art.

During the conception phase as well as for the good conservation of her works, MDAUTEUIL favors natural acids and water-based products. The original blend of recycled materials, bones, woods, seeds or dried flowers is transformed into rich semi-precious textures.

Her poetic and artistic creations carry a strong message whose aim is also to enlighten society’s awareness with regard to environmental issues.

 

 

Each composition is its own unique little world, a wall art piece adorned with a vegetal and animal decor, a planet offering a new tale surrounding human being and memory.
