On 19th February 2015 thanks to the sale at auction of her “Diva” at the Hôtel Drouot, Dotty has seen 15 years of her professional work officially recognized and rewarded. Fifteen years, during which from Nantes to New York and Paris to Seoul she has built a body of work and a relationship network.
A figurative sculptress, Dotty expresses her talent and love of life by creating her works in stone or bronze, in a poetic and symbolic style.
Amongst her masterpieces, her “Tree of life” mural sculptures in bronze polychrome is to talk about biodiversity and our origins.
She also likes to make the emphasis on past traces in our present life.
For an example, the serie of pieces called “In love Samouraï ”. These 4 sensitive pieces are imagined like a short film that shows the steps of the reconciliation between the past and the present, the samouraï and his beloved. The magic key seems to be the dialogue : look at their eyes ! The movement of the bodies illustrates the changes on the cople intimacy .
Many of her works appear in corporate collections (Aspi-Ouest) and with several collectors. Her work is also supported and encouraged by the Société Générale private banking, Traditia patrimony and Château Carbonnieux which have held private exhibitions. Her works can also be seen in 3 Galleries.
Previously, Dotty devoted her first 15 years to the creation of the human body and portraiture. She created nudes with delicacy and expressiveness which rapidly attracted recognition.
The American critic, Maurice Taplinger (Gallery and Studio) commented in 2012 “Dotty makes it clear that beauty is still a highly prized quality in contemporary French art”.
Her portraits and sculptures have been privately commissioned and can be seen for example at the Lycée Polyvalent de Ploërmel (56) , Collège Lassalian (Clisson 44) and in Montmartre Cemetery (Paris 75).
