“ between the human being and the savageness.”

Blandine De La Motte
I was born in 1977 and graduated from the National Fine Arts Academy (iParis). Afterward, I worked for the Faculty of Medicine in the department of anatomy and dissection, as well as for the Museum of Natural History.
Our universe, especially the “cabinet de curiosites”, and bestiaries inspired me. I use animals as models in my art to suggest a profound link between human beings and savageness.
The colors are also an important part of the work. They are often primary portraying a minor landscape. Through my art, I offer what today’s contemporary individual misses the most: her animal fragility.
