Lucianne Lassalle

Born in Paris in 1960, now living in Bristol, England, Lucianne has made sculpture since she was a child. She grew up in a bohemian artistic environment; her mother is a potter and her father a painter, her Aunt was one of Picassos Muses (Girl with the Pony tail 1953).

The human form has always been Lucianne’s passion. It holds endless possibilities albeit just as pure sculptural form or as a socio-political reflection or comment.

Hugely influenced by contemporary dance and physical theatre, she explores dramatic movement as figures fly, fall and dance through space. “I see the human form as the interface between the mental, emotional and spiritual processes inside and the external manifestation of these in the world. I am fascinated by the complexity of the human experience and from this I am compelled and inspired to make sculpture” Lucianne Lassalle

"Some of the work subtly ‘has a go’ at male machismo while simultaneously paying tribute to the whole classical culture that was largely their (male) invention" Howard Male Integrating human, animal and earth energies; merging ancient and contemporary mythologies of gods and mortals. The rawness of the animal forces and the sacredness of the angelic forces work their way through to the body surface cracking open the thin veneer of civilisation and social mores as Lucianne redefines and celebrates the exuberant wildness and freedom that is inherent in our inner nature.

Lucianne works from the life model, as well as from photos and memory. Working on pieces on all scales from 15cm to 2 meters, she works in initially in clay the sculpture is then cast into limited edition Bronzes or resins.
