Marian Fountain

Born: 1960, Otahuhu, New Zealand. 

Lives: Paris (since 1991).

Education: BFA, Elam School of Fine Arts 1979-1983.

Training at the Rome Mint (1985-6), extended her foundation in bronze casting and gave her another tool to look for a certain essence or universality, leading her from a period of “archaeological” research to an interest in metamorphoses.

In her sculpture and personal medal work she is now orienting towards the biological structure and nature of life and consciousness.
