« Working with clay is a moment of pure sensations. A kind of accomplishment of myself. It’s such a blessing to be able to play with this material and express my emotions. Telling a story, the feeling of the moment, is the main purpose of my work. »
Christine Blom started sculpture classes in 2006 in Brussels in Annabelle Hyvrier’s studio. She stayed there for 2 years learning the essential basics of figurative sculpture.
For 6 years, after moving to Lisbon, Portugal in 2008, she discovered the art of ceramics and learnt different techniques such as glazing. Christine studied at the Fine Art University of Lisbon and at Helena Abrantes’s studio.
In 2013, she moved back to Paris for a year and worked at the Rrose Selavy studio.
This dynamic and passionate artist and entrepreneur is now based in Hong Kong and founded the community multidisplinary creative space « Bulle d’Art » which she inaugurated in April 2018. There, she devotes herself as much to the creation of her works as to the organisation of group classes and curating exhibitions.
Christine Blom is well known for her « piece unique » ceramics figures. She has participed in many group exhibitions and her ceramics are shown by « Carré d’artistes » gallery in HK and Paris.
In 2019, for the first time, she made her emblematic artpiece in bronze in Bangkok, collaborating with the team of the well known french sculptor Val.
Bulle d’Art is now settled in Bangkok with sculpture classes and new possibilities for creative works for the artist.
In March 2023, as both Art Curator and artist, I organise a group exhibition with French and Thai artists called “CHOICES: what do you stand for?”.
She will take some Thai Artists’ art pieces to Portugal in the summer for an exhibition and have this new exhibition in Bangkok.
Her work has evolved with the discovery of new countries and cultures, life stages, new influences, special events…. But her passion for colours and their meaning, disproportions and a refined shape to be affected immediately by the emotion, are the essential spirit of her work.
« Artists are storytellers. My stylized silhouettes and characters are just the expression of MY state of mind, urgency or a moment of pure happiness. These feelings can be YOURS now or tomorrow . That’s the joy of ART. »
