Look at these amazing Merged Sculptures Between Women And Nature By Juliette Clovis, a french artist works primarily with female busts, mutating the forms to adopt animal or floral-based characteristics.
In her sculptures using both the 2D application of paint, and 3D addition of ceramics, she covers the females that she sculpts in horns, quills, and blooms.
In some works the natural elements look as if they merge with the bust, while others appear overtaken.
In this piece Clovis’ white figure is almost entirely covered in flowers, with minimal elements of her face barely peaking out from its blanket of ceramic blossoms.
Her plastic work is organized around 3 big topics that are the links between modern art and nature art, the opposition between life and death and the dialogue between tradition and modernity.

For years, the contemporary artist worked on female identity and the representation of women in contemporary society and its history.
In her most recent contemporary artworks, her women are completely transformed into hybrid beings, mixes of history, myths and chimerical dreams.
The female bodies are invaded by a profusion of wildlife and flora elements, evoking a nature that is both soft and worrying turning into something much more then abstract art.
She questions the balance of power between Human and Nature.
Conjugating ambiguity and employing metaphors, Juliette’s sculpture wobbles between a prophetic picture announcing the birth of a new living being, human body with a half-animal half-vegetable face; and the onset of death caused by an hungry nature wanting to take back its rights.
