The human being is the main subject of Elisabeth Dupin Sjöstedt's work. This slender bodies, with suggerated shapes, are in a moving position or static. Their detailed faces reveals a mysterious personnality.

The artist transports us in different times, past or future, real or fantasized.

Clay, faience or sandstone, allors the artist to give life to the characters. Fabric, wood, or even sand are sometimes mixed with the clay. The artist lives in the Val de Marne, in France, and studied at the famous Ecole du Louvre, in Paris. She has won numerous awards.

Elisabeth proposes a walk through singular worlds, and makes us want to imagine new ones, populated by her mystical creations.

« How to deal with our world, if it’s not with the body we live in. Thanks to it, we can see, feel and find out this multiple and magical universe. 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

The gallery's words

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. Elisabeth has a very sweet universe, in which we feel good immediately. Faces, couples, made of porcelain, express a great delicacy. Elisabeth has brought a touch of sweetness to the gallery and it is always with great pleasure that we discover her new works.
