About Isabelle Biquet

Isabelle Biquet began carving at the age of 24: first of the clay, as an autodidact. For more than a year, she in released a gallery of characters screaming, sneering, human beings grotesque, tormented, expressive. On the advice of an artist friend, she enrolled at the Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts in Brussels (Belgium), where she quickly discovers the joy of cut stone and marble, activity to which it will devote its energy from 1994 to 2007. It will also pass through the Anderlecht Academy, where she will further elaborate stone carving and work around the living model. "Isabelle Biquet sculpted human figures strong and powerful and female bodies on which the trace of scissors remains clearly visible" (W.T. 1999) In 2000, she had the opportunity to make a first experience with the bronze thanks to a command of a life-size character. In 2007, after have slightly abandoned the stone work, she begins to wax modeling and produces a series of small bronzes original. In parallel, she began training in "drawing and pictorial writing" at the school of the Arts of Braine-l`Alleud (Belgium). She lives and works in Belgium. --------------------------------------------- Isabelle Biquet a commencé à sculpter vers l`âge de 24 ans : d`abord de la terre glaise, en autodidacte ; pendant plus d`une année, elle en a sorti une galerie de personnages hurlant, ricanant, des êtres grotesques, tourmentés, expressifs. Sur les conseils d`une amie artiste, elle s`inscrit à l`Academie Royale des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles (Belgique), où elle découvre très vite le bonheur de tailler la pierre et le marbre, activité à laquelle elle consacrera son énergie de 1994 à 2007. Elle passera aussi par l` academie d`Anderlecht, où elle approfondira la sculpture sur pierre et le travail autour du modèle vivant. "Isabelle Biquet sculpte des figures humaines puissantes et solides et des corps féminins sur lesquels la trace des ciseaux reste clairement visibles" (W.T. 1999) En 2000, elle a l`occasion de faire une première expérience avec le bronze grâce - une commande d`un personnage grandeur nature. En 2007, après avoir un peu délaissé le travail de la pierre, elle se met au modelage de la cire et réalise une série de petits bronzes originaux. En parallèle, elle suit une formation en Dessin et Ecriture Picturale à l`Ecole des Arts de Braine-L`Alleud (Belgique). Elle vit et travaille en Belgique.
