Claude Lalanne's work has an understated charm that chooses an organic poetic approach to forms that are mainly natural animal and plant forms. Through skilled techniques of moulding and manipulating guilded bronze and galvanised copper Claude places her signature of delicacy and sensitivity on her sculpture. Following on from Renaissance artists she re-discovered the art of casting natural forms directly from life and through the years produced a body of work incorporating these elements. Both and old and new pieces of jewellery will be exhibited .
Tim Noble and Sue Webster have worked with Louisa on numerous collaborations with their latest series of works taking influence from their journey to Tutankhamun's tomb. On entering the burial chamber the visitor is pulled into a burial chamber which is where the influence for this work was revealed. The inquisitive eye feasts upon exquisite details of a shrine filled with sculpture - a delicious mass of entwined creatures, each cast in solid silver and plated in pure gold. Taking this influence their latest collection for Louisa displays miniature animal sculptures cast in precious metals and adapted to be worn as jewellery.
The artists will be in attendance at the Private View and are available for interviews. For press inquiries, please contact Cecily Motley at 020 77494 4664 or Cecily@louisaguinnessgallery.com
