    The beauty of this work increases over time, it is the characteristic of a work of art! This goes beyond a traditional acquisition.
    My best idea: offer an Artgraine seed as a birth gift. What could be more beautiful?

    The sculpture is beautiful, with a lot of detail and an interesting texture work! Received very quickly in a nice neat packaging.

Poetic immersion in the plant world

Séverine Cadier, a reserved artist, has been working for 20 years on the theme of seeds. Passionate about an almost carnal relationship with nature, her artistic universe is an integral part of her commitment to the preservation of the living. In his cosmogony, the notions of planet, humus and ceramic matter are the facets of a whole, an incessant object of his quest, a source of inspiration, work and bliss at the same time.

She defines her work as sculpture. The start is the clod of earth that will be transformed over the course of the gestures into a seed work that will have used all the material and absorbed, sometimes, external elements (wood, paper, stems or inflorescences or even old tools). She rejects the scientific value of her works highlighting the artistic genesis of her gesture, in which formalism and rigor of measurements and control have no place. However, the botanical veracity of his works is recognized by many institutions that commission pieces from him.

The aesthetics of the work is a fundamental dimension of the subject. The apparent lightness of the seed, the subtle rendering of the play of light and matter on the different textures, the purity of the lines of the composition are formal quests that cross the work of Séverine Cadier. In a game of modeling, sculpture, subtle work on the epidermis of the work, the artist seeks to approach the aspect of these embryos animated by the absolute power of life.

Séverine Cadier picks with an art consumed in her mastery of multiple ceramic techniques. Here the raku becomes the instrument of creation of a network of ribs, elsewhere the smoke gives shadows, relief and veil on the surface of a cotyledon.

His approach is imbued with a powerful desire for transmission and awakening to the discovery of the living. It invites the viewer to a walk in the world, finally little known, of seeds. These objects, whose size increases from 2 mm to 50 cm, disturb the visitor's perceptions. Similarly, the mineral transposition of originally organic materials distorts the observer's landmarks. An upheaval of the senses to engage in an aesthetic research, in a societal questioning on the attention we pay to the living, in a philosophical quest on the origins of life.
