About Claire Durand-Gasselin

I'm a French artist, living and working in New York.
I'm also a mixed-media and book artist, and also the Creative Director of Mad Gleam Press.

My imagery draws inspiration from surrealism, romanticism, spiritualities and language. I create landscapes and beings that meet each other to express an être-au-monde (presence to the world) through a certain dissection of reality mechanisms.
