Fabienne Slama, a French-American artist puts femininity into three dimensions, capturing the power, glamor, beauty and vulnerability of the female form in bold yet sensuous bronze and cast stone sculptures. A biochemist by training, an artist by heart, influenced by great Bay Area instructors, Fabienne’s love for the human body evolved from a molecular level to an emotional one when she decided to pursue her passion as a sculptor full-time in 2001.
More recently her work has evolved to represent the powerful and fierce women. Those who could be seen in fashion magazines as well as in daily life: entrepreneurs, businesswomen, mothers and spouses who need to fit in so many different roles that they sometime forget their own self to become object of desire and admiration.
Esthetic, tenderness, attitude, translated in colorful, emotional bronzes sculptures have allowed FaB’s award-winning artwork to be represented in collections worldwide and to be been shown in galleries in California, Arizona and France.
