Both of them being passionate by sculpture, they created an art foundry and craft the lost wax works of other artists. There was only a few step to go before working on their artistic creations. Chantal has explored very different universes letting her imagination wonder into childhood but also to women and their femininity. Her work has been so successful that the artist has not been able to continue her work of foundry and after 20 years to oscillate between foundry and workshop, Chantal has been exclusively devoted to her artistic creations. Present in the largest gallery the artist enjoys a good reputation.

     

    The words of the gallery

    At first I discovered her childish universe, with colorful balloons, children pointing their noses to the sky, horses straight out of the imagination. Chantal created a magical atmosphere that attracted attention. Then I discovered over the years new artworks equally interesting, characters, slender, refined and sensitive, which highlight femininity and elegance.

    In 19777 he met Chantal De Block and both cdreate a foundry lost wax in which they perform the bronze works of many artists. After 20 years of experience as founders, they decide not to devote more than to their own creations. Stylish and refined, the caracters of Robert displayed great restraint. The bronze stretchand settle in breaks of rare elegance where the line and the curve play an essential role, wearing shell, ostrich egg, colored ceramic that cannot fail to emphasize the intrinsic beauty of his work.

    The gallery's words

    The work of the artist was presented to us by an artist's agent. I was immediately seduced by Robert's "unreal" universe. Figures with simplified silhouettes, simple attitudes, bodies in conversation.

Her workshop is located in Saone et Loire in the town of Chapaize, in the village of Bessuge, since 1989. Sha had previously settled above Cluny in the town of Lournand, in the pretty valley of Chaume. Her exhibition in the small barn, overlooked an ideal landscape for a painter of the Renaissance. Standing on the window side, a majestic swan took off in a perfect counter-light.
    Before that time, she lived, one can say was recluse, ten years in a village of high Clunisois, Saint Léger under the Bussière. Lost in these wooded mountains, far from modern confort, but in total independence, she has modeled herself as a ceramic author.
    Her pieces are figurative, narrative. Her style is obvious, a "Dégluaire" is easily recognized, without the need for a signature. She describes her work as statuary rather than sculptor. For her, the volume passes through the shape of the human body, the female body above all and the animal body. Quite often these bodies mix, men have chicken legs and hens breasts, according to the need to transcribe the truth of her dreams. Over the years, Monique’s animals statuary are a reference among her contemporaries. It would be wrong, however, to keep it in the animal domain. The women, the heroines of her very particular mythology, the couples, the warriors and the clowns, the children, always difficult to grasp; all her characters, large or small, become alive through her hands. Her sculpture have a face, they have a sight, and they delight every collector.

The faces and the characters I create in clay allows me to explore even more the material but also its essence. While I work on a face, I expect somone to appear. Whenever ot occurs, the spirit and the material get then mixed together, that’s when it makes sense.

    Here’s the duality I try every time to define and reunite.

    Through this quest, lots of faces and characters come out./ We can’t say wich counrty, which erat hey belong to. But what they have in common is this mysterious humanity, endlessly moveing and animated by the invisible. » Elisabeth Dupin-Sjöstedt

    We often look for new artists, but they sometimes show up to us. Elisabeth Dupin Sjöstedt came to the gallery during a stay in Bordeaux. She felt in her environment and spent time discovering the work of other artists. After a few exchanges she introduced me to her work. Not only did I really appreciate the person, but the discovery of the work was just as interesting. The decision to work together was obvious.

  • FERREIRA David
  • GALINSKI Evelyne
    "My characters are born from a deep personal and unconscious memory. I think they can also emerge from collective memory. They do not tell about the human body, but a dream of humanity. They cover their tracks...They invite to lose the marks of time, those of male/female, child/adult, alive or dead. They urge to drop all forms of reference and to find a similar look to that of the child."
    Evelyne Galinski born in 1950, creates a work that is difficult to speak. Caught up in the emotion face to the sculptures, the words seem too reducers and more approprioate are the silences. How to translate the emotion that overwhelms us and pincers. A well-being, inner peace, universality, an infinite possible...The earth, being, the soul...the earth...

    The gallery's words

    So much emotions !!! I first discovered the sculptures of Evelyne Galinski on the internet. The first artworks challenged me and I started to follow her work. A few months later we got in touched and agreed on a first meeting intended initially to get to know each other. Evelyne came to Bordeaux and introduced me "Döl" I was blown away by an emotion so palpable that Evelyn left me this sculpture while we had just met for the first time. Evelyne is a sensitive and whole artist who gives what she has without reserve. Her sculptures are born from her hands sometimes without her realizing it. Each work is moving, disturbing, a soul for each.
  • GREGOIRE Bertrand

    Designer, technoplastician, Bertrand Gregoire graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse, And began his career by creating the design agency I.D.forme. member of the OPQDI, administrator of the design center Midi Pyrénées ... He won the Gold award for the Medical Design Excellence Awards of New York in 2008.
    Through a subtle contemporary blend of Pop'art and 3D pixelation, the artist proposes here a series of antagonistic busts, opposing their two facial halves, as much by their definitions and their materials, as by their textures and colors.
    In this new series he addresses various iconic inspirations, themes that are dear to him; Prehistoric Venus, ancient deities, vanities, while revisiting bestiary registers and other figures of comics and cartoons ...
    The artist takes us into a sensitive universe; from the deep blackness of an abrupt matrix to the brilliant brilliancy of the rhinestones, from the implacable modernity of the cube Shape to the sensitivity of the classical volutes gilded with the leaf, as to better express the ambivalence which resides in each of our complex personalities.
    So many faces that seem to emanate from their original mold, emerging figures of their concepts, passing from a pixilated virtual sketch to their very real expressiveness.
    At the time of the 3D printer and all digital, even though the artist is inspired by it as a postulate of departure, the bill of his works on the other hand, is not less artisanal, in the tradition of modeling and resin cast in his studio, in very limited series, which makes them exceptional pieces.
    While conventional sculpture strives to "show" and contemporary art only "demonstrates", the artist's work is part of a contemporary approach, while confirming his deep love for the material.

    The words of the gallery

    Bertrand Grégoire came to present his works in 2012 at the gallery. In line with the ready-made, the artist combined recovery and creation, mixing techniques of diversion and foundry where mechanical parts and spent cans rub shoulders. It was a blow of heart, a really unusual work that we immediately presented in gallery and which was a great success.
    Still in research and perfectionist, Bertrand announced a new job that I waited impatiently without knowing what to expect. The surprise was there again and without hesitation I decided to present it to you. Bertrand Grégoire takes a real pleasure in searching, designing, creating this new work shows yet another side of his artistic creation no doubt we will still have good surprises.

  • JUSTAMON Claude
    Claude Justamon's sculptures are above all a reflection, a philosophy with a promising future. Her androgynous characters are there to remind us that we are all very similar, thus masking the little meaning that our differences could have and restoring universality to its rightful place. The artist creates sculptures, undifferentiated human beings, and evokes a possible elsewhere, a possible otherwise and certainly a reflection to be carried out for each of us.
    For Claude Justamon, the first approach to working with terra cotta was ceramics and especially the Raku technique. This ancestral Japanese firing technique, closely linked to Zen philosophy, is compatible with a ceramic with simple shapes and devoid of any superfluous sophistication.
    For the past fifteen years or so, Claude has been interested in contemporary figurative sculpture, with the same concern for sobriety.



    The gallery's words

    I discovered the bronzes of Claude Justamon on a French art show in 2014. Her androgynous characters gave a serenity to the exhibition, "a haven of peace" that made us forget the hubbub of the show. Her first sculptures arrived in the gallery just after and since then, we have fun promoting her work. Claude puts in her bronzes's patinas as much delicacy and research as in the traits and attitudes of her subjects. Each sculpture tells a story, communicates, challenges.
