de Soos
opened up her studio to us. Watch the video of our visit to learn more about the artist's approach.

Contemporary French artist Marine de Soos is based in Paris and creates poetic sculptures in bronze, flooded with emotion. She derives her inspiration from the many memories of her extensive travels. She shares with us, through her artwork, all that she has both felt and appreciated about the things she has seen and moments she has lived.


Marine de Soos was born in Paris in 1967, spent several years of her youth in Africa and keeps, to this day, myriad memories which unquestionably influence her bronze artwork. A keen introspection seems to orient her art, forever searching the great continent of her upbringing.


Back in Paris Marine de Soos initially tackled the world of marketing before entirely focusing on the art of sculpture in 1991 when she trained with American sculptor Jonathan Hirschfeld. Since 1999, Marine de Soos regularly exhibits her monumental and outdoor sculpture in France and abroad.


From Africa to the Orient, Marine de Soos relates true stories and conveys moments of pure joy, rehashed from souvenirs gathered from here and there : the position of a hand, a foot, the tilt of a head… Whatever the starting image an emotion is unequivocally connected : " I can only work when I am feeling emotional" says the artist who admits not having "a vision of what [she is] going to create." Her only guide… the emotion and, ultimately, an invitation to take a rare poetic journey which thrusts the viewer into a contemplative state.

  • From her childhood spent in Africa, Marine de Soos kept images and an open-mindedness, which still fuels her artistic work. Like shamanic objects, her bronze sculptures are charged with emotions, which are passed on to the ones looking at them.
