I fell in to sculpture,’ says Christine Margotin when we ask her about her stint with the art. Leaving behind the corporate world, Margotin started sculpting professionally from 2009. She quit her job, moved to India and then began her love affair with the beauty she saw all around her and that translated in to her art pieces.

‘Once I came to India I had more time to meet people, more time to do what I loved,’ says Margotin explaining that earlier sculpting was just a hobby for her but with her time in India, she transformed it into a career.

Beauty Makes Us Happy is Margotin’s first solo exhibition that features 20 of her works in the national capital. Her works are figurative and she finds inspiration in everyday life.

Her endeavour is to share these everyday moments without the need for articulation. She has selected moments and scenes drawn from daily life and endowed this ordinary ‘everydayness’.

The works exhibited describe her journey from France to India - A journey resulted in amalgamation of the French and Indian culture in the form of this exhibition.

‘I saw beauty all around me and I wanted to bring those emotions out through what I create,’ says Margotin.

So what has she planned next? ‘Nothing yet,’ says the artiste. But she points out that she has more moments captured in her mind that will soon transform into another body of work.
‘I store the moments in my head and work on them later,’ she adds.

Clearly this lady is just allowing some more great art to gestate in her head and we can’t wait to see what she will create next!

When: On till 21 November
Where: Galerie Romain Rolland, Alliance Française
