Artist At Home: Marine de Soos
At the foot of the Pantheon and a few steps from the Sorbonne, Marine de Soos has chosen to set up her sculpture studio and her home in a listed building in a small, historic, green impasse. A resident of the Left Bank for more than thirty years, she particularly enjoys being away from the hustle and bustle of the street. Over the years, she has also developed a rich relationship with the inhabitants of her courtyard, particularly the artists and architects in the studios next to hers. In her studio, Marine finds herself alone with her tools, sometimes with live models, in order to shape her characters inspired by the gestures she observes during her travels, poetic attitudes, expressions that forge a face. In the middle of a set of mirrors, we discovered her work in progress. In her adjoining flat, with its exposed beams and atypical volumes, around a superb Roger Tallon spiral staircase, objects gleaned over the years rub shoulders with numerous works of art. The artist invited us to a cup of coffee to discover this other haven of peace, which shelters her universe of softness, humanity, and beauty.
