Education

 

Since 2018 Trainer at the European Institute of Ceramic Arts - IEAC - Guebwiller - France

Sandrine Bringard was born in 1986 in Mulhouse where she lives and works. She quickly began a course resolutely turned towards art; first in a training in applied arts in which she approaches drawing, painting, the search for texture and decoration on ceramic.

 

She continued her studies at the National School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg.

Magritte by his vision of reality nourished by dreams; Frida Khalo by the singular expression of her feelings and the luminosity of her colors; Rodin's realistic art imbued with sensuality and pain; Daphne Corregan who takes her on a reflection on anthropomorphic containers.

All these artists and their works echo the work of Sandrine Bringard.

 

She then feels the need to confront the shape, the volume, the curious use of enamels and engobes.

At the same time, she tries out several shaping techniques and cooking methods. Then begins his work as a ceramist using the earth - clay to start her reflection on the Body.

 

After obtaining her diploma, she left for a year in residence at Thiébaut Chagué, at Terre-Plein Céramique. She discovered high-temperature wood firing and the special requirements of the clay..

This immersion takes her to new forms while reaffirming her theme: the body and body parts.

She interprets the notions of interior - the invisible and the suggested - and the exterior - the visible and space -, orality, language.

Then begins a sculpture work that fits into the world of contemporary ceramics.

 

It maintains a physical relationship with the Earth; this material endowed with a memory which has the capacity to record the pressure of its fingers; she likes gestures and the use of tools.

Her sculptures are shaped with the Earth plate that she stretches on the ground. She builds her volumes around a void.

She plays with the engobes as if to wrap her pieces with a second skin, raw or colored.

She uses a glossy enamel to capture the light, matt to absorb it as an introspection, the wax as for a thin protective film on a porous form.

The evolution of her work leads her to use other materials for her colors, her textures: rubber, wool, rope, wood, neoprene in filaments ...

Water remains a determining element and a source of inspiration, fueled by the writings of the philosopher, Gaston Bachelard. Water that is never present but evoked by textures, by objects borrowed from the aquatic environment which mutate and which merge with the Body or part of the Body, buoys, pull buoys, floats, bath towel ...

 

She treats the Body as a container filled with thoughts, moods, fluids.

She exhibits the body parts and the limbs as autonomous "individuals", free to move guided by their feelings.
