Daniele Matalon is a citizen of the world. She was born in France, near Italy, and grew up exposed to the Italian and French masters’ works all around her.
While later making Paris her home, she traveled extensively in Tuscany, the Cradle of the Renaissance. It is not surprising, then, while presently living in Southern California, she has turned her
energies to painting and sculpture, drawing upon her formative years in Europe as well as the sights and sounds of the world she has explored during the last 20 years.
She is just at home sculpting the Masai people of Africa as she is depicting subjects from other lands she has come to know and love.
One can say that the world and all its peoples are her palette.
Her work with Man, with Woman, really distinguishes her representation of the human form in all its sensuality.
These sculptures are at home with us in the garden as well as indoors, surrounding us with their sentient presence.
Thanks to her self-confident and intelligent approach to her medium and subject matter.
In fact, we take delight in her caring rendering of each and every subject she gives us.
We look forward to seeing this artist and her future works evolve and delight us further.
