After studying architecture, a radical change of career into business management, a parenthesis in the 1990s when she exhibited works made from clock mechanisms in an art gallery in Rennes, Catherine Trochu is now completely devoted to contemporary ceramic art as a result of an advanced course towards contemporary artist Matthieu Lievois. Since October 2016 she has been a member of the Ateliers d’Art de France.
She incites us to discover forms and movement, exploring black, blue and white, matt or satin, as raw materials for her sculptures. Her current works consist of a “bambous” line, a “tubes” line and a “bouteilles” line: dynamic sculptures through vertical shape and design, enhanced by movement, as if thrust skyward, like trees in a luxurious setting.
She also explores a “gants” line, a “sculptures” line and an “anneaux” line: works with soft and voluptuous curves linked with strength in their creation. This discovery extends to the combining of shapes through peculiar sculptural disposals.
The works achieved are unique, in stoneware or porcelain.
