Area(s) of Expertise

Sculpture/Installation, Bronze Casting and Digital Processes: Foundry/mouldmaking, 3D Digital technology RP

Overview

Regardless of the venue, or the technique, Claire Brunet's sculpture reveals an interest in the social aspect of culture. Her recent art is less about the relation of forms to space, or the three-dimensional modeling of art, even the surface appearance of elements. More often, it concerns itself with issues that are central to today's society: health, environment, and identity. Her art affirms these concerns with what could be called a displaced realism, something that offers clues to this sculptor's general and philosophical level of inquiry into life. John K. Grande, art critic
