(Pertuis, France, 1981)
“Tabouret’s gestural, fluid paintings depict figures floating in imaginary, mystical landscapes with an air of the uncanny. The people are recognizable but the narratives elude us. Illuminated by neon underlayers, her subjects glow from within as we are drawn into the artists’ subjectivity.” (Perrotin, Seoul, 1f 5 Palpan-Gil, JongnoGU, Seoul, South Korea).
Claire Tabouret’s canvases depict bodies in confrontation, portraits, people from young debutants to migrants at sea and colorful landscapes evoking the theme of memory and images of the past. The human being is central to her work.
