Keeping her child’s soul: this is the intention of Adelie, a multifaceted artist whose colorful, playful and joyful universe is inspired by the spontaneity of childhood and its brightly colored games such as as legos and puzzles.
Adélie Ducasse grew up in the islands, New Caledonia and Réunion, where she developed her taste for colors and primitive shapes.
Later, it is in California, that she reconnects with the feelings of her childhood. She lived there for a while and returned there often to enjoy her sunshine, her lifestyle and to be inspired by the modernist architecture that characterizes the region.
The geometric abstraction of these creations has its origins in her passion for mathematics – an extension of her childhood games – which she studied at university.
Adélie loves natural materials and works with craftsmen with unique know-how. She uses ceramics to shape design objects and sculptures with her own hands, giving them a unique appearance and expressive personality. From it is reborn the joyful naivety and poetry of childhood.
