  • About the artwork

    "Le buste de Thésée de Christophe Charbonnel s’inscrit dans le cycle des héros mythiques de l’Antiquité traité par l’artiste depuis maintenant plus d’une dizaine d’années.

    On retrouve dans cette œuvre l’archétype du héros absolu, personnification idéalisée du courage, de la force et de la détermination que Christophe Charbonnel, par un traitement à la fois virtuose et puissant, sublime dans une attitude où s’exprime la dualité tragique inhérente du mythe : à une destinée des plus nobles se mélange le doute mélancolique d’une bravoure souvent vaine. C’est le regard encore plus que la noblesse de la posture qui rend la gravité du moment, attitude que l’on retrouve également, mais de façon moins prononcée, dans le Pirithoüs, autre buste de l’artiste, que l’on peut considérer sans hésiter comme son pendant.

    Dans son œuvre monumentale Thésée et l’Amazone, Christophe Charbonnel aborde la figure du héros dans une mise en scène mêlant la dramaturgie la plus sensible à la prouesse technique la plus audacieuse. Par une maîtrise parfaite du sujet, le buste de Thésée recentre ici le thème sur la psyché du héros et polarise la virtuosité de l’artiste dans la transfiguration de l’inconscient avec une économie de moyens des plus singulières.

    Ici, Christophe Charbonnel éblouit par la grâce du rendu et l’harmonie de l’expression : sereine détermination d’un homme hors du commun, beau et désirable, inaccessible en somme". Texte d'Aurélien Gnat

Christophe Charbonnel

Born in: 1967

France

Emergent Artist

Christophe Charbonnel was born in Nantes in 1967. He has been working with sculpture for 17 years.

In 2002, he decides to make a living from sculpture and quits his cartoonist job at the Walt Disney studios in Montreuil, to move with his family in the Yvelines. he dedicates himself full time to his practice. Quickly, he becomes aware that he belongs to a lineage of sculptors whose technique, learned in 1995 at the Duperré school in Philippe Seené's studio, consists of working with profiles.

His works are acquired by many public and private collections and he has more and more exhibitions. His works expands to monumental sculpture, in size (Colossus, Warrior, ... ) or in number (Group of Warriors, ... ).

The public sector becomes interested in his work (he receives a commission for a fountain, a Christ), but businesses are his main clients, as they are particularly interested in his monumental and spectacular works.

Enjoying great exposure thanks to acquisitions made by foreign and French palaces (the Ritz in Paris, Four Seasons in Cannes, ... ), Christophe Charbonnel's works are more and more on demand.

In 2011, he is a winner of the Fondation Taylor.
