Isabelle Thiltgès
La Grande Envolée - Monumental Outdoor Bronze Sculpture of a Bird

2010

$106,323.80

About

Isabelle Thiltgès "La Grande Envolée (The Great Takeoff)" is a 250 x 250 cm monumental figurative bronze sculpture. It is a limited edition of 8. It shows a bird flying through circle. Despite the large size of the sculpture, the flying bird emanates a wonderful sensation of lightnes and freedom. This sculpture is suited to go both indoor or outdoor. Given the monumental size, this sculpture is cast upon commission. Self-taught through her patient work on clay, which she has been sculpting for more than twenty years, Isabelle Thiltgès, Belgian by birth, currently lives and works in Brussels, where she resettled after some thirty years of Parisian life. Independent and nourished by life, she addresses various themes that are instinctively chosen in line with her sensitivity. "My bronze sculptures invite the viewer to travel. Whether small or large, from birds to inhabited circles, from full faces to sketched human silhouettes, the eye wonders between the solids and hollows shaped by the sharp and essential refined lines that I love so much." Deliberate eclecticism and sobriety combine to highlight the originality of her work, much present in private collections and regularly exhibited throughout Europe and in the United States; that of an unclassifiable free spirit capable of giving form to the impalpable, of a profundity that she expresses with restraint and authenticity This majestic flying bird sculpture gives the viewer the impression of truly flying through the circle. Despite the monumental size of this cast bronze, Isabelle succeeded in transmitting a sense of lightness and freedom that is quite unique.
