SCULPTOR AND CURATOR
« Working with clay is a moment of pure sensations. A kind of accomplishment of myself. It is such a blessing to be able to play with this material and express my emotions.
Telling stories, 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 was based in Hong Kong and founded the community multidisciplinary creative space « Bulle d’Art » which she inaugurated in April 2018. There, she devoted 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 participated in many group exhibitions and her ceramics are shown by the « Carré d’Artistes » art gallery in Hong Kong and Paris.
In 2019, for the first time, she made her emblematic art piece in bronze in Bangkok, collaborating with the team of the well known french sculptor Val.
Bulle d’Art is now settled down in Bangkok giving sculpture classes and creating new possibilities for creative works for artists.
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, is 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. »
As the curator of this exhibition, I have chosen a theme that matters to me and the intercultural point of view will be interesting. It appears that even the understanding of the question "What do you stand for?" was not the same. That was amazingly positive.
As an artist, I had to make a choice. As a human being, I have a lot of concerns in this world that changes so quickly. I think it's challenging and confusing.
My Choice is to SAVE THE FLOWER , flower as a metaphor for HOPE.
HOPE that we really do something to protect Mother Earth that keeps us alive, HOPE for the Ocean, HOPE to keep our own freedom and the right to be our True Self.
