Catherine Gontier

the Atelier G

Plastic artist in Rochefort-en-Terre

L’Atelier G is located in the heart of Rochefort-en-Terre “Small city of character”. Discover the poetic universe of Catherine Gontier who oscillates between her daily life and the poetry of certain subjects that she revisits, anatomy, fauna flora… Seen from afar, drawings, sketches drawn in space or suspended in the void. An impression of fragility, lightness, materialized by a material: the wire.

Catherine Gontier

Art has always accompanied Catherine Gontier and is an integral part of her ecosystem. After a BAC Cursus Plastic Arts, she continued her studies at the Beaux-Arts de Cherbourg and the ENA in Limoges. It was during her first year at the Beaux-Arts that volume was invited into her artistic life and it never left her.

its poetic universe

Stunning sculptures

Made of wire

Full and empty will be an essential element of her first monumental structures before being found in creations with smaller sizes. The artist thus gains in lightness of material and execution.

Working with wire for nearly 15 years, she cuts, twists, binds, emphasizes, suggests, it is indeed a vocabulary borrowed from sculpture, but also from drawing. She is one of the few artists who can carry her workshop in her backpack.

Installed since 2015 in Rochefort-en-Terre for its inspiring living environment, Catherine Gontier draws her artistic impulse from it every day.

Her profession also brings her a daily freedom and a permanent renewal that she particularly appreciates.

Universe of cabinets of curiosities

She offers an artist’s studio space open to the public. Pushing the door is to discover the cabinet of an artist who, in the objects of everyday life, infuses all its poetry.

Catherine Gontier aspires to inscribe in its evolution of new encounters and innovative views, so as to focus fully on its creation.

Catherine's approach

“I like things that are clean, the line, the lightness. I try to keep this thread. A long-term work, of the order of choreography, in search of balance, which must remain imperceptible…
