After some years as a dentist, Brigitte Teman decided to become an artist and to devote herself to sculpture. Since her childhood, sculpture has been haunting her. However a rigorous education imposed her to take a more conformist way in life. Nevertheless, and for our greatest pleasure, passion was stronger. She is known for her sculptures of women among the Marciano Galleries. But the creation of animal sculptures has become another segment of her art.
In order to improve her style, she often visited and learnt in many art workshops under the supervision of some different masters. She made many nudes, classical at the beginning then more stylized. Then she made animal sculptures at the same time, developing her own style about bas-reliefs and high reliefs. Her favourite material is bronze but she uses some materials full of bronze powder too. She works with some famous foundries such as De La Plaine, Chapon and Landowski. Brigitte Teman particularly endeavours to make her sculptures alive, using feelings such as serenity, tenderness, kindness…
The beauty of the lines that constitute these animals captivates and moves us. Brigitte Teman captures the instantaneity of a moment of softness. The roundness and delicacy of these voluptuous lines soothe us. Smooth and polished, the patina disarms us then charms us. Although wild, here these animals are presented to us through their tranquility. Their formal tranquility translates their moral innocence. We are as if seized by their inner beauty. All in all, the zoomorphic universe of Brigitte Teman’s sculptures fills us with wonder by the majesty that results from it.
Since 2005, she has been exclusively exhibited in Marciano Contemporary Galleries.
