"Now, we need something else ...

 


        Lise Del Medico est une artiste autodidacte qui sculpte la Terre depuis 12 annĂ©es maintenant.

Au cours de ces annĂ©es, au fil des rencontres et des expositions, elle n'a cessĂ© de se charger d'Ă©motion (de l'Ă©motion qu'est la vie), ce matĂ©riau brut, inĂ©puisable, qui la nourrit et anime spontanĂ©ment les personnages qu'elle façonne. En toute simplicitĂ©  et avec sincĂ©ritĂ©, son Ɠuvre est la proposition d'une recherche de l'UnitĂ©.
 
         Du fait de la matiĂšre mĂȘme, la sculpture est une synthĂšse alchimique des Ă©lĂ©ments essentiels (l'argile structure, l'eau modĂšle, l'air sĂšche et le feu durcit). Elle permet de toucher au vivant par l'inerte et d'atteindre une autre rĂ©alitĂ© du mouvement : le mouvement intemporel qui, du centre de soi, rejoint le monde dans le pressentiment de l'infinie beautĂ© du cosmos.
 
         Les personnages de Lise Del Medico apaisent... Recueillis, sereins, mĂ©ditatifs, ils ouvrent le dialogue sur le sentiment d'universalitĂ©. Nourrie de cet Ă©change et des tĂ©moignages touchants des personnes touchĂ©es, cette sculptrice ne cesse d'Ă©voluer, de crĂ©er, de recevoir et de donner, Ă  l'Ă©coute de la mĂ©lodie secrĂšte du monde, inspirĂ©e lorsque dans sa quĂȘte d'unisson elle entend sa propre rĂ©sonnance s'accordant au son unique...

 

 Lise Del Medico is a self-taught person who has been modelling clay and making terracotta statues for 12 years now. Throughout the years, the people she has met and the numerous exhibitions she has taken part in, have all nourished her art with emotion (and life is but emotion) ; it is emotion, this raw but ever present material, which drives both herself and her art and gives life to the characters she models. Very simply but always sincerely, Lise Del Medico, through her art and work, has been in quest of Unity. 

Clay modelling is the alchemical artistic synthesis of the four elements (clay structures, water shapes, air dries and fire strengthen). It enables one to blur the borders of death and life and to reach motion (and by doing so, emotion) through motionless. It gives one the ability to reach for another kind of motion; a timeless one which deep from one’s inner self, bonds with the infinite beauty of the world.

It’s been said many times that Lise Del Medico’s terracotta statues have a soothing effect on the beholder
 Meditative, contemplative and calm, those statues bring people to think about universality. Thriving on the countless and very touching displays of consideration from people touched and moved by her art, Lise Del Medico is constantly changing and evolving, both giver and receiver, tuned in to the secret melody of the world.
