Niki de Saint Phalle: Buddha


A self-taught artist, Saint Phalle first came to critical attention through her work with the Nouveau Réalisme group and her Shooting Paintings. Part performance, part painting, the viewer was invited to shoot the surface of the work in order to burst the pockets of paint held within.  

After moving to California in 1994, Saint Phalle began to paint less, increasingly working with sculpture and mosaic techniques. As shown in Buddha, she used mirror, glass and stone to create vivacious, glittering sculptures on a monumental scale.
