Everard Read is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new paintings by Claude Jammet.

Comprising two distinct bodies of work, the exhibition is a compendium of beasts exquisitely executed in oil on paper on canvas.

About

In Jammet's Bestiary works, the portrayal of each animal embodies a moral lesson based on age-old fables. Her Anthropocene series is a moving and chilling meditation on humanity’s far-reaching impact on the majestic creatures with whom we share the Earth.

[Jammet’s] paintings have the ancient fragility and power of the skulls and bones she collects. The paintings are relics of everything she has lived – an archaeology of her disquieted soul, an urgent need to close the circle, a pilgrimage toward hallowed ground and precedent lives. Her reds are those of blood, her ivories those of bone, and her blues and violets those of veins and tendons.                                                                                                                                                          - Alessandro Papetti, artist
