Evelyne Brader-Frank is a Swiss sculptor who works primarily in stone, bronze, and steel. Her works celebrate the human form, usually the female form, and are inspired by Greek mythology. Her career took off while living for a period in Canada, where she is still represented. The Allis’s chose Thaia for the fluid lines and movement in the marble piece. The name Thaia stems from the Greek word for “flourish” or “bloom” and is related to the Greek muse Thalia, the muse of comedy and pastoral poetry, quite perfect for The Bower. Referencing her choices of materials for each sculpture, Evelyne notes that “stone is the warmest of all and this leads to statues that emanate life”. Thaia is shown in several locales in Switzerland in the slide show below. She will be coming to The Bower in summer 2020. For Evelyne's website and Instagram see www.brader.ch and @BraderFrank
