Maïté Duval's sculptures and drawings are alternately tender, intimate and powerful. With simple means and full of deep attention, she manages to rise above figuration. Each element sounds in harmony, has a place within the great form. The artist takes us into a world of robust form and movement; a world full of earthly femininity. Full of beauty in the everyday'.
