Sara Lorenza Emilie Amato born in 1976, known as Sara Amato Gentric, is a sculptor from Lorient in France. Instinctively interested in crafts and poetry as a child, Sara grew up to become a teenager studying Sociology in University of Savoie in Chambery. Reading through Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Emile Dickinson as a teenager she was getting drawn towards depth of feelings and sensibility expressed in a creation. Further stumbling upon the writings of Emile Zola the French writer, the idea of making stories which he referred to as,’ moulding humanity just as a sculptor treats clay’ really touched her deep within.
The mind of a wanderer drove her out of the University aimlessly, during which she accidentally happened to find a small pottery studio in Chambery. There did she get the feel of clay for the first time. Though she was exploring pottery for a while, pottery was limiting creatively. She stopped pottery and started to wander again several months, until she found the right teacher .
Art teacher Jean Marc Desrues, opened a new way in art for her - sculpting; guiding her how to follow the feelings and create and live. Established La Compagnie du Rouho in 2004; an institution for Pottery, Sculpture & Creative Sewing. There was a period of diversion from Art, where in family and work took over. In 2016 Art reappeared in Sara’s life and sculpting took a different maturity level. Being trained as a pianist since childhood, a sense of natural rhythm is reflected in her sculptures.
Quoting the words of Sara – “Day after day, the inner path leads to the infinite void, which inspires me to express that beauty into my physical reality. Sculpting is my way to open a window and to look at small fragments of my soul, through which I express the movement and sweetness of spiritual love.”
