We are pleased to present sculptor Florence Sartori :
Florence Sartori entered the art world at a very young age due to a favorable environment for an artistic career. After attending the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, she continued to work with performers, musicians, dancers, actors, and artists. The fusion of all these artistic worlds driven by creativity then led to the desire to work with matter and create a new tool of expression through sculpture. Strongly inspired by movements of the body during a dance, Florence Sartori began her studies and work on the dynamics of the female body in motion, attending various sculpture workshops and using her long observation of dancers as her foundation. Along with terracotta, she creates with melting material – bronze -, cultivating the concept of the original element inherent in terracotta. This explains why her bronzes are often unique pieces in different formats. Her work is regularly exhibited at various galleries in France, Italy and the United Kingdom.
Florence Sartori has placed Woman at the center of her aesthetic universe. Her resolutely life-oriented approach arouses emotion through timeless female figures. Whether a warrior, fulfilled, fragile or assertive, Woman is both singular and plural for Florence Sartori. She focuses her attention on the arching, tensing, stretching, and ease of the female body, which can assume a balanced, symmetrical, sensual, and sometimes geometric form. She seeks to enhance the dynamics, energy, and vitality of the body in motion and signify its freedom, capturing a natural attitude of movement in an instant, like a snapshot, and restoring its line. This original line is purified and stylized to seize the essence of the body of Woman, in its most universal aspects: curves and voluptuousness, flexibility and sensuality, balance in space, tensing of the body, suspended movement, swaying hips or aerial arabesque. These virginal-looking women, fully feminine and free, never really reveal themselves. Clothed simply with their patina, they tell a story of Woman.

The series “Woman, singular and plural” by Florence Sartori
This series focuses on different timeless female figures and presents the Woman’s body through its most universal aspects: curves and voluptuousness, flexibility and sensuality, balance in space, tensing of the body, suspended movement, swaying hips or aerial arabesque.
The series “Ultramarine” by Florence Sartori
This series explores the color “Beyond the Seas”: Overseas and White.
Through the prism of an absolute, lively and incisive blue, which emphasizes and accentuates the lines, this series takes a look at the Woman, and articulates its gaze around the curve, the movement and the stretching of the body. Penetrating and luminescent, this blue provides a depth that reveals an inner radiance to each sculpture. As a counterpoint and by contrast, white is naturally inserted in this series and lays the quiet basis for a peaceful perception of curves and forms. A terracotta series, contrasting, between Ultramarine and white, between luminous character and calm nuance.
