Very much inspired by design, Capucine naturally named this collection after the famous quote of Mies van Der Rohe: “Less is more”. This series of sculptures is a work on the minimum. Removing material to obtain the ideal shape. To evoke the most with almost nothing. These abstract and minimalist sculptures are sometimes inspired by a single word, a single aspiration, they take on meaning for the artist once completed. As always in the work of Capucine Safir, these works are very organic, soft, and sensual.

__________
Born in Paris, Capucine Safir now lives in Miami. After working for several years in the movie industry,
she decided to change careers and earn a degree in interior design in Australia where she lived for 3
years. Back in Paris, she works for her own firm. In addition, she discovered the art of direct carving in stone in a studio in the 17th district. This form of art is immediately natural. It is after her second expatriation, in Miami, in 2013, that she becomes a professional artist by extending her practice to other materials and techniques. Capucine integrates a local gallery in the first year. Since then, her sculptures have been part of numerous private collections and are regularly exhibited in contemporary art galleries and fairs throughout the United States.
