Niki de Saint Phalle
(born Catherine-Marie-Agnès Fal de Saint Phalle, 29 October 1930 – 21 May 2002)
was a French sculptor, painter, and filmmaker.
The 35-minute-documentary, Introspections and Reflection explores the life and art of Niki de Saint Phalle, the self-taught Franco-American aristocratic beauty who died in 2002.
Although her art is internationally renowned and loved by people of all ages and cultures, her place in the history of contemporary art and sculpture remains undervalued by the art world.
This biographical and visual exploration of her work and life, fraught with rage and suffering, and ultimately, regeneration and joy, provides a context for one of the 20th Century's most complex, brilliant and inspirational female artists.
