Born in Normandy on 7 March 1964, it was not until 2007 that Christine Faict took the plunge and embarked on the artistic career she had dreamed of for a long time.
Far from being groundless, the decision to study at the Beaux Arts School (receiving her degree at Besancon in 2012) was the result of an ambition that Christine Faict had cherished since her teenage years.
She quickly found her artistic voice, her sources of inspiration and her favourite medium. So it is with a certain force and her own unique poetic sense that she tackles metal carving.
Through her monumental sculptures Christine Faict tries to bring mineral and vegetable matter together to create a rendering that she wants to be close to fossilisation. These iron mammoths shout out and denounce the precariousness of our environment, giving expression to Gandhi's wise words: "The world has enough for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed".
The artist finds her inspiration in the beauties and sufferings of nature. Her attention to detail, on a monumental scale, compels the spectator to enter the infinitely small and, by moving back, view this majestic surface.
Its solid inks remind us that human beings must again learn to become one with nature. While the artist's works are a call to awareness, they also offer the spectator an intensely intimate experience. And Christine Faict explores this contrapuntal relationship herself, during each creation, through the duality that is the femininity of its iron lacework and the masculinity of its mass.
