Biography photo for Brigitte Nahon
Brigitte Nahon, French born, creates sculpture that investigates what she describes as precious moments of balance between tradition and modernity. To pursue her quest for perfect balance between paradoxes such as fragility and solidity, heaviness and lightness, emptiness and fullness, air and water, she uses a wide vocabulary of materials, colors and textures including steel, glass, crystal, stone, brass, wood, canvas and paper.

In 2006 she became an American, and in 2008, she became an Israeli Citizen.  Her studio is in Tamil Nadu, Israel.
