Joy has green fingers, in fact, if it had not been for paint- ing she would have liked to become a gardener. Moreover, nature became her principal inspiration. She describes her work as poeticising reality. From her earliest childhood Joy de Rohan Chabot dreamed of imaginary gardens, which thus naturally became a recurrent theme in her collections.

An exceptional and multidisciplinary artist, she lets her talent find expression using a very wide range of materials includ- ing iron, wood, glass and aluminum. She carves wood, pol- ishes glass, cuts metal, applies lacquer, paints sheet metal, gilds using gold leaf etc. Her hands and skillful brushes give birth to original and dream-like pieces, which invite us to discover the highly personal universe that distinguishes her.

Through her work, the artist’s intention is to show how sim- ple materials can gain a sophisticated, decorative and time- less identity. Joy de Rohan Chabot is a consummate artist, who forms her vision of her works and does not relinquish until the final stroke of the brush or chisel. She is equally at ease with both technical and decorative work.

Today her work is internationally renowned.

In 2008, the Musée Jacquemart-André paid tribute to her and, a year later, on the occasion of the official Year of France in Brazil, Joy de Rohan Chabot was the guest artist of Jorge Elias, who exhibited a large number of her works in his Gallery in the heart of São Paulo.

In January 2015, VIPcorner is honored to introduce Joy de Rohan Chabot for the first time in London at Joseph 77 Brompton road.
