受她父亲在雕塑方面的实验启发，这位出生在布埃诺斯-艾利斯(Buenos-Aires)的艺术家创作了一些小尺寸的石膏脸，看起来像是在运动。在布宜诺斯艾利斯大学(University of Buenos Aires)学习后，瓦勒斯搬到了纽约，在那里她以艺术家的身份开创了自己的事业，为约瑟夫(Joseph)等时尚巨头品牌做宣传。她还尝试过做模特，成为FCUK活动的代言人，并成为丈夫、摄影师乔什•奥林斯(Josh Olins)“实验系列”“Tierra”中的缪斯女神。
Argentinian artist and sculptor Conie Vallese casts faces in eternal states of transformation.
Inspired by her father’s experiments in sculpture, the Buenos-Aires born artist creates small-scale plaster faces that appear to be caught in motion. After studying at University of Buenos Aires, Vallese moved to New York where she made a career for herself as an artist, working on campaigns for titan fashion labels such as Joseph. She has also tried her hand at modeling, becoming the face of an FCUK campaign and the muse in her husband photographer Josh Olins’ experimental series ‘Tierra’.
She is best known for her fluid sculptures and monochrome prints. Her collection of porcelain heads feature mouths left hanging open, faces appearing to look around the corner and contorted expressions. These sculptures work almost like optical illusions: look at a sculpture for long enough and you start to see new faces and new profiles. It is this fluidity and ability to warp perceptions that make Vallese’s sculptures so engaging.
