Réhane Favereau
Artistic paper cutter
Chambésy

« To cut is to shape a story. »

About

Claimed to be self-taught, Réhane Favereau started cutting in 1997. The first hesitant scissor cuts quickly gave way to extraordinary dexterity and know-how, revealing the budding passion of the young novice for this form of artistic expression. Her talent and her participation in several Swiss and Japanese exhibitions - as well as the reputation of some of her clients (UNICEF, Swiss Mint Swissmint) - make her an essential artist in the world of cutting.

« Finesse, delicacy and patience are the essential skills for the art of paper cutting. »

Sensitive to the meaning of life, Réhane Favereau cuts into paper to transcribe her dreams, her experiences or those of others, according to the orders. If the ascent to the mountain pastures - the "poya" - remains the most classic representation of this art, the creativity of the Chambésienne extends well beyond the alpine scenes. It all starts with an idea expressed, first, under the lead of a sharp pencil. The difficulty? The drawing is done upside down on specialized paper (white on the front, black on the back), which requires, beforehand, to mentally represent the final result of the cutting. Finally, the dance of the cutter – or the scissor – gradually reveals the realistic and childish work of the artist; a new story was born.
