GEISHA SOPHIE ZINA DAUM :
GEISHA SOPHIE ZINA DAUM, French sculptor and painter after beginning her artistic career in painting, Sophie Zina O. embraced sculpture in order to achieve, as she explains, absolute creation. Troubled by philosophical questions and Man’s function on Earth, her sculptures are born of her considerations for earth as a fundamental mineral element.
She created "Geisha" for Daum. Highly respected in Japan, the refined Geisha dedicates her life to the practice of traditional Japanese art.
♦ DAUM FRANCE :
More than three hundred and fifty artists have worked with Daum, each with very different styles. Daum’s creative force is its ability to combine an artist’s unique personal aesthetics with traditional expertise. From the concept artist Ben to Dali, the surrealist, from Etienne’s symbolism to Jérôme Mesnager’s urban art, from the Trojan horse revisited by Carlos Mata, to Alain Séchas green nymph.
Daum succeeds in the challenge to unite artists from different universes. The extreme plasticity of pâte de cristal and its almost immemorial character make this millennial technique a true link between cultures. Thus, in modernizing the ancient craftsmanship, Daum also offered artists from the 20th century the opportunity to become timeless.
