Françoise Pirson : the taste for materials
Trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, Françoise Pirson completed her training with a practical course in Pietrasanta, in Italy, where she learnt to master the techniques of bronze and marble. It is there that she has developed her particular taste for materials. She can be increasingly characterised by a form of ethics which lies at the base of her sculptural work : respect for materials, whether these are stone, bronze, wax or wood ; not to betray their quality and looking how to release their intrinsical potentialities.
