It allowed him to recreate those small or large animals without which he could not live. Cats, goats, owls, ants, pike... Once an adult, the sculptor surrounded himself with a whole menagerie. The sculptures of Claude Lhoste are the result of a long observation of the manners of his guests, a visual and emotional shock by which he discovered the mystery of these perfect beings. The animal was repeatedly redesigned before being transcribed directly into the ground. He was also a draftsman curious about new techniques and eager to master them. The original form has become essence, it is only the case where the movement expresses itself.
Unified volumes surrounded by an undulating and continuous line punctuate the action of the animal, their destiny and their tension reflect the movement of the spirit. Sometimes he remembered that the body of a woman could be voluptuously beautiful, but it is through the animal that his work touches the sublime. Cast in bronze, animals are seized in their most significant attitudes. His sculptures are full of tenderness, humor and love. Caressed with light, the shapes modeled by Claude Lhoste are a great hymn to sculpture and life.
