Sculpturesite Gallery is pleased to introduce the work of French artist Claude Roux. La Vie is Roux’s first exhibition in the US. She is foremost a creator of drawings and ceramic sculpture, but she is also an author of complex human characters who live full lives. Her depiction of men, women and children, nude or clothed, is profoundly humanist. Roux has no patience for unrealistically slim figures. Her “people” are of the earth, undeniably alive and formed by tangible life experiences that we can each personally recognize or project as we please. As an artist, she has created her own “beautiful”. She continues her practice and shows in various galleries, chapels and chateaux in France.
For a quick glance inside the artist’s studio, Sculpturesite visited the artist Claude Roux at her atelier in the south of France and produced an introductory film as part of Sculpturesite’s video series “Inside the Sculptor’s Studio.” Visit our website under the tab “Exhibitions” to see what inspires this artist’s work.
