Cathy de Monchaux’s forest of pregnant female figures are rooted to the ground, yet appear to be floating in space. The starting point for this work was an image of a fantastical sculpture by de Monchaux titled ‘Raft of Oaks’. This was hand-edited with pen, pencil and graphite to create a new piece with greater depth and richness. As a result, minute variations will be present between editions.
De Monchaux is renowned for her intricate, decorative sculptures which evoke an underlying sense of anxiety. Her work is seductive and often explores themes of eroticism and death.
