Lise Becu Biography

Lise Becu draws on Inuit mythology and her vivid imagination to create stone carvings of animals and people, often with each species intertwined in a storied relationship. Her shapes are sensual, lines fluid, and surfaces vary between rough and smooth. Becu, who works in alabaster, granite, or beach stone, will let the stone’s shape dictate the metamorphosis: a pillar of black granite becomes a woman gently sheathed by three great birds; an irregular stone, a chicken; a block of limestone, a boy hugging a rabbit. Becu’s work is in numerous private collections. She has participated in cultural exchanges for sculptors in Finland, France, and the 2011 Schoodic International Sculpture Symposium in Maine.
