Self-accomplished artist, Catherine Hutin has been sculpting and painting for the last 40 years. She started her career painting and quickly turned towards the art of sculpting clay and bronze.
Catherine Hutin discovered she had a gift for expressing motions, emotions, gestures through shapes and materials, and her talent was quickly pointed out.
Throughout her career, one of her main focus has been on sculpting portraits, in clay and in bronze.
“When the representation of the human face ceases to be a mask and becomes a portrait. This is a very emotional instant when you discover in a split second your model in the clay or in the bronze.” (Catherine Hutin)
Also strongly influenced by Alberto Giacometti, Catherine Hutin has realized statues stretched out and elongated, to express her unique view of reality, capturing the gesture and the emotions.
Nowadays, she continues sculpting mostly portraits upon request.
Catherine Hutin entered local shows and held solo exhibitions in France.
