INGRID DONAT. Anne Bony. Editions Norma, Paris, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 304 pp. 30 x 22 cm. ISBN 9782915542950 In English.
Due date: September 2016. Publisher's description: Ingrid Donat creates sculpted furniture, most often in bronze. Taking a painterly approach to this weighty medium, Donat draws on diverse decorative influences. Art Deco, tribal tattooing, the work of Gustav Klimt and Armand-Albert Rateau have all inspired the intricate patterning of her work. Elements of Donat's practice remain consistent. Her creative process begins with a sheet of wax, which she inscribes, carves and shapes to form the "skin" of her work. This structure is then applied to her designs. She herself engraves the bronzes, paints the upholstery and treats the wood. Her pieces have been cast at the same bronze foundry, the Blanchet-Landowski, for over 20 years, as the stamp they bear goes to prove. Though often large and heavy, there is a delicacy to Donat's work. Almost like armor, she uses bronze to shield an idea of the fragile. In addition to her skilled craft, Donat is also an accomplished engineer. "Commode 7 Engrenages" incorporates a column of cogs into its sides. They begin to whir when the chest's drawers are opened or closed. The intrinsic mechanism animates the piece with movement and sound.
