Vero REATO, protean artist
Vero REATO sculptress on concrete and plastician. Having received a degree in Design at the École des Beaux-Arts in Nancy, she has explored, ever since 1995, various techniques in artistic expression - design of objects, sculptures, illustrations, paintings, restoration of frescoes – before discovering what was to become her favourite material among all others: concrete.
Concrete, a matter of Art as a matter of fact!
It was her urge to create outdoor artworks that lead her to discover Ultra-High Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC). Its flexibility of implementation, its mechanical performances, its infinite possibilities for the inclusion of various materials (wood, ivory, glass,...) enable her to spark off an original and liberated creativity, totally one of a kind in the achievement of mural compositions, sculptures and use objects.
She explores this 'gray matter' and elaborates artworks which are sensitive and offbeat, where mineral and organic fuse into multiple cells she calls “Concrete Culture Medium”. Vero Reato thus reconciles the Man's common task with Nature. Her sculptures and indoor/outdoor installations can harmonize with any living-space and never fail to create awe.
