Clairemo realized early on that through drawing, not only could she escape from boredom, but she could also shape her overflowing imagination. An only child, she spent her younger years reproducing everything that passed before her eyes: characters from the comics she devoured or the paintings compiled in her old dictionary of painting. She had a real admiration for the extreme freedom of Pablo Picasso (Spanish artist, twentieth century) and the absurd and offbeat humour of Gotlib (French comics author, twenty - twenty-first centuries).
While studying at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Clairemo became passionate about art history and especially for the biblical and mythological scenes of the Italian and French Renaissance. Romantic, sometimes grotesque, grandiloquent or otherwise intimate, they reveal the broad range of human emotions. Clairemo especially captures the ability of art to move us, to make the beholder think and travel internally. Since then, although the forms and techniques deployed by the Breton artist are constantly changing, she continues to tirelessly explore the human figure. She is especially interested in the dark side of her fellow man, his complexity and authenticity.
Clairemo’s characters are fragile, ambiguous, unusual, incongruous. Collage enables her to superimpose different things to make them evolve in an enigmatic world. Surrealism is her mode of expression. She envisages this style as a form of resistance to the empire of compliance and the dictatorship of appearances. For the artist, the absurd is also therapy when it releases the unconscious allows dialogue with oneself and generates relevant interpretations.
