Julie Savard

Julie Savard is an artist from Saint-Brigitte de Laval in Quebec.  She graduated from the Maison des métiers d'art de Québec, and has been practicing sculpture for many years, but professionally since 2002.

Fascinated since childhood by the natural sciences and biology, Savard draws her inspiration from the complex textures that can be found in certain morphologies of living beings. Her sculptures evoke the madness of organic life, the elegance of the vegetable kingdom and the astonishment of the animal world.

Over the course of her career, Julie Savard has developed a sculptural vocabulary that combines opposing concepts, such as the fragility of lace and the solidity of metal, through the delicacy of lace which is juxtaposed against the thickness of certain alloys.  Her structures are entirely made up of a network of organic lines inspired by morphological elements of nature. It is by forming the metal then by subtracting certain parts that she creates aerial forms that are reminiscent of lace. Paradoxically, the works of Savard open a dialogue between life (organic) and the object (inanimate).
