AVAILABLE NOW: new Pascale Taurua

Paris-based artist Pascale Taurua explores the complexities of life as a 21st century woman in her new series of limited edition artworks. Featuring two of fashion’s most iconic shoes – Converse trainers and Louboutin heels – the hand-finished pieces present footwear as a symbol of power.

She explains: “Shoes are an intensely sexual symbol. Like painting, sculpture or dance, clothes are a way of revealing a vision: we can celebrate our true selves through what we wear.”


Inside Pascale's studio

The artist’s studio walls are adorned with drawings, photographs and images from magazines, which she fuses to create figures that are both personal and universal.

Painting on canvas with extra-fine oil, she blocks in her sketch before allowing the piece to choose its own direction. Her expressive style is inspired by Jackson Pollock.


"When a woman wears heels, her body changes: her figure sways, her head is upright and her shoulders are back. It’s so sexy."
