Artist’s Note
"The concave carvings follow the wood pattern, creating an optical illusion of bubbles. I have developed my work in several directions. My work is characterized by unique pieces in simple shapes to which I associate turnery, carving, sandblasting and painting. The decentered concave shapes allow me to create optical illusion effects amplified by a work on color. By digging the soft grain of the wood, sanding strengthens the natural design of it. With wood, I also work on light through transparency. I like pure and taut lines that seem pleasant to my eyes and to my touch."

About Vivien Grandouiller
Vivien is a young French woodturner. In 2003, he started his formal training in carpentry, cabinet making and furniture creation and worked in those fields. In 2011, he moved into woodturning and spent a year in Moirans-en Montagne to complete his training. He met many French and foreign turners in Aiguines and Breville. Quickly, he found a sense of creative freedom, and started studying sculpture with artist Thierry Martenon. He perfected his skills through studies and an internship at Escoulen School, and then an intensive five-month course with Jean-Francois Escoulen and Yann Marot. He’s currently in residence at the school for one year.
