About

Uta Brouet is a sculptor and printmaker, living and working in London and South of France. 

She creates images of solace. Anthropomorphic, hybrid figures, totemic guardians, that convey a vibrating force in their upright posture and powerful stillness. Form and haptic sensations are essential to her work as they have the power to awake primal emotional responses through memory of touch. She likes to create sculptures of human dimensions or slightly larger scale, beings that the viewer can walk up to, get next to, measure up with, dialogue with. They are playful and sensual, yet their beauty has a disturbing element, which creates a feeling of ambiguity and challenge, unsettling the position of humans in the constellation of the natural world.

There is something at once both mysterious and familiar about her pieces, which seem to be rooted in a very personal mythical universe, touching on Norse mythologies, fertility cult studies as well as anthropological research on the sacred object.
