Claude Justamon's androgynous characters, undifferentiated human being, evoke the feeling of a potential elsewhere, of an otherwise possible. Holders of dignity, strenght, purity and serenity, they are also questioning. The bias of the artist is the expression of what we have in commun, our similarities, bringing us closer and seems fundamental and timeless.
Wanting to be out of reach of the vortex of a world where agitation rules and sometimes superficiality, without necessarily being disconnected, these things lead us to think, propose us an attitude, a journey.
The first approach of working the clay was, for Claude Justamon, ceramics and especially the technique of Raku. This ancient Japanese firing technique, closely related to Zen philosophy, adapts a ceramic with simple shapes and devoid of unnecessary sophistication. For fifteen years now, Claude Justamon is 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.
