Clara Crespin’s work wavers between narrative figuration and lyrical abstraction. Working with painting, engraving and sculpture, she creates objects and paintings that examine the body as a source of sensations and raw emotions that go beyond codes.
Art that renders the invisible visible
Clara Crespin studied contemporary art at the Ateliers des Beaux-Arts de Paris. A multidisciplinary artist, her creations reflect internal conversations. They immerse her in a world in which everything effaced by time seems to be brought back to life. They are loaded with questions about her identity and her relationship with the divine and sacred. But above all they open a door into the dimension of the metamorphosis of the invisible revealed by the artist’s hand.
Weaving a guiding theme to tell a story
The tangles and connections found in Crespin’s work are simply a pretext for evoking the concepts of uprooting and duality; these are the guiding themes. The figures that appear bring her face to face with her roots and her relationship with the world.
Womankind, respiration and myths are just some of the themes that resonate through work which is also influenced by “Primitive Art”. Over her career, the artist has found herself nearing and attaining an unexpected depth.
