Atelier Luc Trizan
Trizan keeps the creative flame burning. His family comes from Florence in Tuscany, where working marble and stone is an almost sacred tradition.
Luc studied architecture, travelled the world and then settled in Saint-Paul de Vence. He first encountered ochre in the quarries of the Sine Forest in Vence, and learned to work the pale beige material, incrusted with fossils and veined with transparent quartz… like a bunch of golden muscat grapes.
Trizan uses this strong, bright and fascinating rock to take a fresh look at the concept of a work of art. He endeavours to extract images buried deep down in the stone's memory and to transcribe them, to engrave them, to suggest them in polished or raw nuances. He creates a seed of awareness "because perhaps stone has a spirit?". He places man before this raw material and the question of time. "But nature under assault rebels, takes hold of me, floods into me. I instinctively stand still and my sculpture gradually takes on a lasting form…"
His studio is in the village, 12 rue Grande ; Trizan looks forward to helping you grasp the meaning of his sculptures and their secrets.
