Born in 1966 in Fontenay-aux-Roses, Carole Leroy obtained a BTS in architectural environment arts at the École Supérieure des Arts Appliqués before graduating from Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1994.
In 2000, she created the Beaux-Arts de Paris Foundry. In her approach, Carole Leroy focusses on work with molten metal, which is lengthened, marked and transformed, all the while retaining the indelible and constitutive imprint of its forming. Interested in writing processes, her works are series of assemblies of forms and counter-forms which tend to consume the fundamentals of their own emergence. Among her recent exhibitions: L Concept Gallery (Paris, 2018), Galerie du Colombier (Paris, 2017), YIA Art Fair (Paris, 2014) and the 3rd Sculpture Biennial (Yerres, 2011).
