Freedom, Movement, Paradox and Energy are the words that best describe Antoinette Rozan and her work.
Self-taught multi-disciplinary artist for 20 years, creation is for her a vital expression, which she explores in 2D and 3D, in life and in public spaces, to convey its power and energy to us on a daily basis.
The great success of her first exhibition in France in 2005, and of Sin Sin Gallery’s Trust in Hong Kong, convinced her to devote herself to her art. Over the past 15 years, she has displayed her art in various scenes, from the most prestigious to the more intimate, in France and abroad. Her works have been showed in museums (Hong Kong Museum of Medicine and Sciences), fairs (Affordable Art Fair in Hong Kong) and public places (Cité Radieuse du Corbusier, Clinique Saint Martin in Marseille, Tai Koo Place in Hong Kong). Her joyful art leaves a lasting impression and she has been trusted to carry out numerous public and private commissions in France and China.
Paradox is the source of the strength she infuses into her work. She sculpts in volume, yet sees with only one eye. She expresses that life is a perpetual wave of energy in motion, yet her spine has been sealed since childhood. In her work she embodies the joy of living, yet her life was strewn with hardship. Life may sometimes give us the illusion that we are limited, but, Antoinette Rozan proves, through the universal symbols that vibrate in our lives, that we are limitless. Through her work and her messages, we reconnect with the idea that anything is possible despite appearances.
She gives body to emotions and movement to matter. Substance takes shape in an energetic vibration and a colourful explosion. Despite their XXL size, her bronze sculptures create an illusion of lightness, juggling the void and the fullness. Her soulful paintings are inspired by universal symbols, conveying messages of Love, Peace and Life. They are joyful mirrors, full of love: a giant heart as an ode to the Freedom to be oneself, open arms as an open door to welcome others, a call to self-love.
These days, she creates upon different media, with different materials: ink on paper, silicone, bronze, metal and resin. She continues to share her works in public spaces, open to all, in order to spread the powerful energy contained in them to as many people as possible, and to remind us that our Life Force is linked to the heart, to the Love we have for ourselves, and to the Freedom to be who we are. Her dearest dream is to create emotion by integrating art quite naturally into the daily lives of everyone.
