A tall slender figure stands and gestures expressively. The Quebec artist has created a compelling series of sculptures—hand formed from paper mache and aluminum. Each ‘character’ is unique—this one has cropped bright red hair—a striking contrast to the golden brown of her body. This character pairs well with its lanky ‘partner’ Ernest.
