Aima Saint Hunon-Sculpturer
Aima becomes involved in the pursuit of forms and curves revealing a sensuality similar to her own inner being. The process reveals and amplifies her works with time, in this new momentum, the artist confirms the control of her potential through sculptures varying from 30 cm to 2m.
But sculpture no longer suffices for Aima, she opens up other horizons through painting, that projects her into her imagination, mixing gaiety, enthusiasm and passion.
Always in search of expression, Aima establishes a direct relationship between the sensuality of the world in which she evolves and that of her own body, staging them in a series of videos, and photos. Her performances during private viewings give energy to the exposition shown.
