Thierry Lancelot

Thierry Lancelot works primarily with ceramics to create unique narrative pieces. He works with both mass-market and antique found porcelain figurines, cutting up and or adding gold plated or sterling silver elements to them and repainting them, to create sculptures which depicts the male and female figure caught in sexual poses, or surrealistic renderings. The sexual representation is not the main focus of the works. Indeed commonly known stereotypes of mass production in art, sexual representation of the puritan society or ironic and satirical portraits are representing in a format whose underlying meaning is all about the increase of the emotional response of the beholder. This leads to a personal language that tends to ignite emotion through increased perception. In any regard, the figures - broken remains of times past - attempt not only to express the transience of the human being, but also to act as a clue for the beginning of a revelatory narrative and a critique towards a society that hypocritically condemns to secrecy all those aspects of human life that stretch beyond the social establishment of morality and normality, flirting with sexuality, decay, morbidity and finally with the boundaries of our own reason. The development of his next projects will bring him to the boundaries between art and design using scale as an additional way of expression.
