About Hermine Bourdin

Self-taught artist living in Paris, Hermine creates her universe inspired by the feminine lines of the female body. In her work, Hermine seeks to represent full, proud sensual women. 

Passionate by sculpture since a very young age, she learnt to draw in museums where she would spend hours sketching the sensual sculptures of Rodin and Zadkine or the abstract work of Brancusi. 

Her sculptures are generous and abstract, all imbued by a strong and protective tone. Once imagined, the shape is drawn before beginning a long dialog with the material, doing and undoing the work until each piece comes to life in a perfect balance of curves and movements. Then she starts the process of finishing touches giving to each piece this unique sensual texture. 

Hermine sees every woman as a potential sculptor or shaper of life.

One can distinguish a womb within the opening of the pieces, but one can also see Earth, homonym to her material of choice, that same Earth that nourishes us, Mother Nature.
