Artists of Art – Sculptors in Rochefort-en-Terre

Couple in the city as well as on stage, it is from their common love for art that was born from Lise and Marc, the Galerie ZA. Come and meet them in their studio-gallery located just in front of the Tourist Office in the heart of Rochefort-en-Terre, classified as one of “Les Plus Beaux Villages de France”.

Lise and Marc Sparza

LISE worked from adolescence around jewelry, taking advantage of the tools in her grandfather's garage during his vacations in Oleron. This will lead her to graduate from the Pivaut School in Nantes as a Designer in Applied Arts.
MARC, as for him, a Plumber-Heater by training, he will turn away from it to embrace a career as an artist. However, he will retain solid knowledge in the welding of parts and knowledge of metals.

The art of metals

A common passion

It is the chance of a meeting that will lead them to concretize their wish to settle in the Morbihan in Rochefort-en-Terre then to the opening of their gallery in 2009. The setting and the timeless tranquility combined with the ideal location of the village not far from major cities still offer them the same happiness to evolve there today.

Lise creator of contemporary jewelry

Lise is inspired by great passion for geometry and asymmetry while combining them with bright colors, fine and abstract strokes to result in uniquepieces full of poetry.

She works with inox and aluminum, two materials she tames first with the tip of her pencil and then with the blows of the tools on her workbench.

She creates contemporary jewelry under the brand Mademoiselle Lise Design born in 2004. Her status as an artist gives her all the freedom of action and creation for that.


Marc passionate sculptor

Marc confides that art for him is like breathing. His work focuses around the lives of Men that he tells in the work of different metals. For over 30 years, he has been guided by the materials he encounters: thesteel, stainless steel, bronze … first moving from one idea to another, from the contemporary to the figurative and gradually the elements come together to create a universe…. his universe !

So he mixes poetry and philosophy with the aim of creating emotion in people. It is the encounters that have made his art evolve, they are essential to both himself and his creation.

Today, Galerie Za is an integral part of the Artisanat d’Art landscape in the heart of Rochefort-en-Terre. It should be noted that they are also part of the 4 Ateliers d’Art de France that the Little City of Character has. Lise and Marc have mastered several arts and plan to return to their love of drawing.


Lise and Marc's approach

“United in life as in our imagination, we let our ideas wander and from thread to needle, lightness, poetry and balance are mixed and knotted. All our creations are unique pieces. Sometimes our 4 hands unite to create together wall sculptures
