Born in 1976 in Paris, Laurence Bonnel discovered the art of sculpture in 1998, after her Art History and literature courses that revolved around the figure of the artist. The human figure plays a key role in the works of Laurence Bonnel. She creates in particular, architectural silhouettes, almost primitive, which emanates a grand presence. The motif of the human, that of couples and that of the crowd, is recurrent and central in her imagination, and is purified with the formal stylization that immediately evokes the art of Giacometti, or the
Cubist bodies of Zadkine.
