Tatiana Potapova_Portrait avec sa sculpture Infinite Flight.jpg

Tatiana Potapova was born in Moscow in 1977. She arrived in Belgium when she was 18 to work as an au pair, where she subsequently studied law and management. After 15 years’ career working in international companies, she decided to take up sculpturing, thus renewing a childhood passion.

Tatiana can be described as someone full of energy. It is this energy that she would like to breathe into the pieces she works on. She is fascinated by the idea of ​​infusing movement into a sculpture. It is a wonderful challenge, working in bronze, to capture a movement at that moment of  intensity and to give an impression of lightness! Her desire is that her works dance, jump and play ... that they are alive!

 

Tatiana is inspired by life around her. At the same time, she has realised that in her bronze sculptures, she re-create her childhood dreams.: figure-skating, ballet, gymnastics ... she watched these for hours on television when she was a little girl in Moscow. She admires these women (and men) who through effort and determination manage to give us an incredible impression of elegance and lightness ... This is also what she aimes to achieve in her work ...

Tatiana Potapova's studio is situated in the center of Tervuren.  For a private visit you can contact her via potapovatat@gmail.com or +32/478370075.
