Soasig Chamaillard - Apparitions

Soasig Chamaillard is a French artist who got inspired by Christian iconography and pop culture. A huge talent, an an awesome Saints series, as you can see. My eyes are happy. Here what does the artist say about her work :

“I grew up in a Christian Western society. My perspective on life has been a result of my environment and background.

The playful interaction of society’s many icons, physical transformations, and the resulting improbable combinations, have culminated in my vision of a woman’s role and place in our society.

This inner questioning of a woman’s role, has led me to use one of the most sacred icons in my work, namely, the Virgin Mary.
Initially, I begin with damaged statues, either donated or discovered in garage sales, which I then restore and transform.

I surely do not mean to chock those who believe but rather to move those who see.”

Soasig Chamaillard est une artiste Française inspirée par l’iconographie chrétienne et la pop culture. Un talent exceptionnel pour des séries de Saintes qui ne l’est pas moins. Un vrai bonheur pour les yeux ! Voici ce que l’artiste dit de son travail sur son site : 

“Issue d’une société occidentale chrétienne, ma réfléxion est influencée par mon environnement.

Par le jeu d’associations d’icônes, de transformations physiques, ou de combinaisons improbables, je parle avant tout de la femme, de sa place et de son rôle dans cette société.
Ces questionnements m’ont amenés à travailler sur l’image sacrée de la Vierge Marie.
Je travaille à partir de statues abîmées, provenant de brocantes ou de dons, que je restaure et transforme.

Je ne cherche pas à choquer ceux qui croient.
Je ne cherche qu’à toucher ceux qui voient.”
