Biography

Saint Clair Cemin creates sculptures that range from concrete forms to surreal abstractions, informed by wide range of art history and world cultures. The Brazilian sculptor has worked in various styles and techniques such as bronze, painted wood, and lacquered steel, always infusing his works with a handmade quality, and referencing everyone from Auguste Rodin to Jean Arp and Niki de Saint Phalle. The range of his practice was seen in the public exhibition “Saint Clair Cemin on Broadway,” which featured seven works, including a totemic female figure in hammered copper, a fractal pyramid in Corten steel, and a rugged marble carving called The Wind. Cemin lives and works in Brooklyn and Beijing.
