Marie-Paule Deville Chabrolle, a French painter and sculptor, studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Pau and spent two years in the Phnom-Penh Fine Arts faculty in Cambodia. The artist’s approach is a highly personal adventure. Every encounter, every country she has travelled through, every image glimpsed, and every emotion experienced contribute to her creation. Her works are a passionate tribute to grace and femininity. She draws, sculpts, and transforms women in bronze, producing curved figures of expressive gentleness that emanate a sense of contemplation and inner strength. Her works are exhibited in the Galeries Bartoux in Paris, Megève, Cannes, London, New York and Singapore.

"Le lys d’eau is only a straight line full of emotions, memories, tastes, and past lovers transmuted in the solitude of the workshop. Before becoming a sculpture, “Le Lys d’Eau” was at first a perfume, a sweet and warm summer afternoon, a river of shade under the trees, a man who will gather water lilies in a stream to replant them in a fountain of a house…The perfume still…mixed with that of the white lilies of the garden. What do we know of our hearts and hands mingling with the earth, when a sculpture is created under our fingers? We know everything that has been collected from emotion, from the moment…then we forget about it to see it reappear in the most secret of the earth. But which artist can say that he was never satisfied? That after the earth, he would not want to sculpt the sky or the clouds…with time why not…if he has found the way to do it.

When Daum came into my life, I realized that the light and the elusive colours of the sky were made possible to carve. How could I have resisted? I confided my first sculptures impatiently to see how my earth, so heavy and full, could have color, transparency and light… It was so beautiful yet so different…so began our collaboration. I confided my earth to them, so that alchemy takes place, giving me light and dazzling colors that cross the sky. My wonder still lasts with each new sculpture." —Marie-Paule Deville-Chabrolle
