THE ARTIST

 

MDAUTEUIL is a Canadian designer who lived in France for a few years and now settled in Finland.

Artist since 2006, it combines several elements: bones, glass, soot, snake moults, blood, metals, stones, insects, dried flowers...in short, any matter natural is an inspiration.

 

Her pregnancies had an impact on her work: the Cartesian lines gave way to curves and movement. Her previous jobs as a jeweler and glass blower as well as her studies in psychology have influenced her relationship to the materials used and to their disposal.

 

Memories in Green

STEPS

 

Having lived his childhood in the great woods of northern Canada, MDAUTEUIL's artistic work is strongly imbued with an ecological conscience.

 

Remarkably meticulous, his fascinating compositions uniquely combine creation and memory.

Each memory is a unique moment in a story : a wedding bouquet, a jewel of a loved one or the bones of a pet offer new feelings in the hands of the artist.

Over time, MDAUTEUIL gleans and collects different meaningful materials : precious metals, pieces of blown glass, jewelry or even organic materials gathering leaves, mushrooms, fish skins. Wood and stainless steel will then serve as supports for his art.

 

In the development phase as well as for the proper conservation of its works, MDAUTEUIL favors natural acids and water-based products. The unique mix of recycled materials, bones, wood, seeds or dried flowers is transformed into rich semi-precious textures.

His poetic and artistic creations carry a strong message, the aim of which is also to raise society's awareness of environmental issues.

Each composition is a unique little world, a wall jewel adorned with plant and animal decor, a planet offering a new story around being and memory.
