    ‘I’m trying not to give too much away. It’s more of a mental space, a dream space’ - Claire Tabouret

    The works of the LA-based French artist Claire Tabouret explore the ebb and flow of desire, using the constant movement of the sea as a metaphor for the ever-changing tides of romantic attachment. Drawing upon personal archives and photographs found on the internet to capture anonymous figures in an unspecific time-space, her works ruminate on vulnerability in human relationships and the passing of time.

    Ensconced in a seaside landscape, My Waves depicts two lovers wading into water whilst holding hands. Their bodies seem to float in a nameless world as they explore the uncharted territories present at the beginning of an intimate relationship. Fascinated by the spontaneity of the monoprints technique, the transparent layering and fluidity of the paint allow the artist to create a dynamic composition of superimposed patterns. Set against a lilac background and overlaid with expressive strokes of grass green and navy blue, the hydrous palette presents a scene that is simultaneously recognisable and disquieting, inviting spectators to project their own experiences onto the luminously-rendered silhouettes.

    Claire Tabouret has been honoured with solo exhibitions at international venues including Galerie Perrotin in Seoul (2020) and in Hong Kong (2019), Almine Rech, London (2019) and HAB Galerie, Nantes (2019).

    「我嘗試著不去透露太多。這更是一個精神的空間,一個夢境的空間。」克萊爾·特伯萊

    現駐洛杉磯的法國藝術家克萊爾·特伯萊之作品探索欲望的起起伏伏,運用海面持續不斷的動態來比喻不斷變化的情感。她的作品運用個人資料庫和網路上的圖片,將無名的人物置入不明的時空中,表達人際關係的脆弱和時間的流逝。

    《我的海浪》描繪了兩個戀人牽著手在海邊蹚水。他們的身體彷彿飄浮在一個無名的世界裡,在探索一段親密感情萌芽的未知領域。被單刷版畫技法的即興所吸引,藝術家以透明的疊層和流暢的顏料創造出一幅活躍的重疊影像構圖。在淡紫色的背景下,草綠和海藍色的筆觸覆蓋交織,極具表現力,水汪汪的調色盤展現了一個熟悉又焦慮的場景,邀請觀者將自己的個人經歷投射在散發著光芒的剪影中。
    克萊爾·特伯萊在全球各地舉辦個展,包括貝浩登畫廊在首爾(2020年)和香港(2019年)的空間,倫敦 Almine Rech畫廊以及南特 HAB 畫廊(2019年)。
