Hermine Bourdin

Paris based sculptress, Hermine creates her universe inspired by the feminine lines of the female body.

Passionate by sculpture since a very young age, Hermine seeks to represent generous, proud sensual women, all imbued by a strong and protective tone. Once imagined, the shape is drawn before beginning a long dialog with the material, doing and undoing the work until each piece comes to life in a perfect balance of curves and movements. Then she starts the process of finishing touches giving to each piece this unique sensual texture.

Her work is an ode to every women. Hermine sees each woman as a potential sculptress of life, that’s why she often places a circle inside her work, to represent a womb or the Earth, homonym of her material of choice, that same Earth that nourishes us, Gaïa.
