Gallery Charron is pleased to introduce you to the works entitled “Allegories” by the sculptor Irène Lussou. Lussou worked at first for the cinema, the theater, the fashion, the operas of Paris. In parallel with this activity, she had the opportunity to assist the sculptor Marc Boulay so she worked on animal sculpture projects, in particular for the Museum of Natural History of Paris.
Since 1996, Lussou dedicates herself exclusively to her own practice. She began with stone cutting and specialized in the creation of large format stoneware. Then she became interested in bronze and metal. Today, she works mainly in bronze and steel.
Lussou creates great feminine silhouettes with large foreheads, high cheekbones, sensual mouths and deep strange eyes, in a mixture of detachment and serenity. They occupy the space with grace and determination.
Another source of inspiration for the sculptor is the spiral which, beyond its esthetics and its elegance, has the particularity of being based on the golden section. It is a universal key to create a sculptural writing where the color comes to underline the drawing. Negative space defines the work and draws the gaze to it as a whole.
