Artist Statement

At the beginning of every work by Claude Hassan, and until its completion, there is an attitude asserting the artist's necessity of placing herself at the very distance she wishes to keep from the painting.                                                                                        This is an attitude, not a state of mind; an attitude, so a behavior to keep and also a will to be here plainly, within this gap.                

Let us say this distance is expressed through a choice: Hassan places herself either behind the work – that is to say she gets through it – or in front of it, which makes it assert itself in a dazzle.                                                                                               Of course the size of the work depends on such a distance.                                                                                  Usually small works have a depth that the largest do not possess, since they are free from the need of illusion.                            Anyway Hassan does not vanish. She gets smaller as she goes through the transparent corridors leading behind the painting – or maybe the painting is growing – and gets bigger as she has to face a monumental approach. Let us notice that a monumental approach depends neither on the work's size – here all works are small – nor on the artist's actual standing back, it depends only on the distance kept by the artist in her relationship with her work.                                                                                   

Therefore in this work there are in turn an extreme refinement  which comes from the subtleness of light and space, and a structural monumentality which leads me to think it is like looking at a minute precious detail, whose magnified shape is geometrically revealed and whose color, reduced to its chemical characteristic, is made brighter.                                                                               

 It looks as though small works were the representation of a universe which is not broader, but whose reality is more immediate, and as though large – frontal – works were the partial reduction of the small works whose enlarged geometry becomes an opening*, as it changes the object's nature.                         

 Thus the space of the corridor offers in itself its own enlargement .
