MASTER ARTIST FOR THE APC TROPHY
Antoinette Rozan, born in 1970, comes from a lineage of five generations of artists, engravers, sculpors and architects.
After a career in luxury sales in France and Hong Kong, she discovered her passion and what gives her freedom: sculpting in clay or plaster, plying metal, letting herself go and guiding herself by the medium itself to create shapes. A real paradox for an artist that can see only out on one eye!
She focuses her research on energy, movement, the mystery of matter that creates illusions: bronze seems to be light, a face hides another, there is a balance where it would seem impossible…
The artist invites us to share the field of possibilities. Her creativity shows us how life is movement. After living in Hong Kong for ten years, she developed a sensibility to the spiritual way of thinking that is customary in Asia.
The sculptor’s work has been commissioned by private collectors, public and private organisations, associations and companies. She has created works as different as portraits, memorials, trophies, monumental sculptures and original works for her patrons. Antoinette Rozan likes the challenge of putting her creativity to use and creating art that adapts either to a strict demand or having her freedom of creation.
