Sculptor Elsa Magrey –
(Admin – Please note, translation via google translator)
My inspiration comes from the Nordic mythology, legends, and above all the spirits of Nature. Gradually, my work focuses on more abstract forms, often inspired by the plant.
It’s always the shape of the material that guides my work. I does not try to talk with the stone or wood.
Headstones vertical perforated with different patterns of foliage.
The verticality evokes the stones, fertility, hope to rise to a path of light as the tree extends its branches toward the sun, between heaven and earth.
As the plant increases and tends towards the light …
It all started with a seed, then slowly became the seed tree, with its memory tree where so many things have happened under its shade.
Then the tree became beam, the beam has watched over several generations of men, with his memory of beam.
Then the beam has become sculpture, with its memory and memory tree beam, building his new story …
But the story does not end there, what will his next life?
It will heat if the fire takes hold of it or perhaps food if insects become involved, fertile ground for the next life … trees.
