Pheulpin Simone

Born in Nancy, France in 1941, Simone Pheulpin lives and works both in Paris and the Vosges.Her works are the result of an instinctive expression that uses both the suppleness and firmness of an untreated, natural material, a simple non-bleached cotton which she cuts into strips and shapes, in a completely inventive way, into diverse and surprising textile sculptures. Self-taught, never having attended an art school, Simone Pheulpin has an absolute sense of sculpture; for more than thirty years, she has built, from her fabric strips and thousands of pins, a veritable vocabulary of forms and shapes with an organic allure, a supernatural world where surprising rocks and the seabed take form, sprung from her spirit and guided by her hands.
