In a nutshell

Sleek & Beautiful

What are they?

Les aimants de la nature is the brainchild of artist Sandra Veillette. It consists of small works of art made from an array of natural materials such as wood, bark, mushrooms, plants, bones and feathers. Most of these materials are collected by the artist herself during long hikes in the forest. Each artwork is mounted on a magnet so that it readily adheres to any metallic surface.

Artistic approach

The artist seeks to reveal nature’s inherent beauty by altering it as little as possible. She wants to highlight nature’s complexity and perfection through its irregularities and imperfections. Each piece is built around a central element that imposes itself early in the creative process. Additional elements are then added, arranged in such a way as to achieve a delicate balance between shapes, colours and textures. Ultimately, the goal is to turn a collection of dead elements provided by Nature into a piece that is vibrant with life.

Dames nature

In addition to Les aimants de la nature, plastic artist Sandra Veillette proposes a series of organic sculptures entitled Dames nature. The ladies strike the pose with elegance and confidence, each one having its own, unique story to tell. Grouped together, they occupy the space in spectacular fashion, providing an opportunity to pause and reflect upon the infinite riches nature has to offer.
