Claire Pestaille

Claire Pestaille carefully manipulates art historical masterpieces. Creating her own plots around the painting’s protagonists the artist unearths veiled allegories and secret histories. The artist exchanges lace fans for morning stars or a broach for a Stag beetle, revealing disturbing version’s of the lives of the female characters. Taking on the role of story teller the artist immerses herself in the lives of her subjects, changing their fate and revising their past.
