Andrea du Chatenier

Andrea du Chatenier’s figurative sculptures draw on the Baroque, in particular the Meissen porcelain produced in Germany in the 18th and 19th centuries and the whimsical conglomerate compositions of Arcimboldo. Du Chatenier animates her materials to suggest an internalized psychological space; be it contemplative, doleful or anguished. Her fictional characters each have their own private narratives and while the works are theatrical and take pleasure in surface ornamentation, they are also highly emotionally charged.
