Meditative and introspective, Jacline Bussières's work testifies to philosophical, existential and fundamentally humanistic concerns. The artist who, in 50 years of prolific practice, has earned the highest distinctions in the art of enamel, is now expressed mainly in paintings and sculptures.
Archaic and angular figures immortalized in bronze or stone, the human being in all its inner complexity and identity has naturally established itself as the central theme and motif of a reflexive approach. Gods, emperors, migrants or heroes of legends, it takes a while to see emerge one by one the multiple entities that she shapes, juxtaposes and coexists at every angle of the same sculpted piece. These find themselves incarnated in dense matter and in generally asymmetrical constructions.
Jacline Bussières has always drawn her inspiration from her personal journey, rich in questions, poetry and mythical stories. At the same time individual, family, clan and community, all bearers of emotional memories, experiences of past and significant inner lives, the ageless beings it gives to see are a reflection of an intimate and universal consciousness. The exploration of original forms, both primitive and modern, gives her art a timeless dimension.
