The work by this contemporary decorative artist follows a long tradition of French art inspired by Nature. But her original and unique vision succumbs only to her own poetic project that corresponds so well to the current need of dreaming to escape the daily constraints through imagination. For this new exhibition, Joy de Rohan Chabot explores the theme and spirit of fairy tales. Enchantment takes its roots in the world of fantasies and enchanted forests. Through the magic of her own exuberance, the artist has created marvelous, fine and delicate pieces of art, most of which are unique pieces.
