Live and work together

Anne Marie Jugnet : b. May 25, 1958 – La Clayette, France

M.A. (DNSEP Art), National Art School of Bourges, France

Alain Clairet : b. July 7, 1950 – Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, France

We met in 1995 in New York and decided to work together in 1997. Our imaginary is principally nourished by the landscapes and the culture of the American southwest. From 2005 to 2012, we lived in Santa Fe (NM). In 2016, we went to live in Lamy (NM).

Our work, beyond an autobiographical dimension, explores and develops that which escapes the ordinary attention of the surrounding world and comes back to an intimate art history.

All that is imposed by sudden emergence, strangeness, dazzlement.

We begin with events and objects encountered during trips that develop our series: deserts, dead ends, the rarity of  information, discrete units, minor changes, details, intervals, in-betweens constitute the universe of our work.

Our point of view is peripheral, we are interested in the margins, the background, the depths.
