Jullien ClémentSee the works
At the end of 2012, Jullien Clément discovers prints and more specifically etchings. He throws everything he has on the matrix - most often zinc - learning different techniques, realizing drypoints, etchings and aquatints, mixed techniques prints, linocuts. There are many bridges between sculpture and etching and many are those who expressed themselves in both disciplines with the same joy considering that material takes a special place in both (Alberto Giacometti of course, but also artists such as Berto Lardera, Henri-Georges Adam, Henry Moore, Marino Marini, Eduardo Chillida and so many others). Jullien Clément will be part of the French Artists Show the following year in 2013 then in 2014; in 2015 he will exhibit his work at the National Society of Fine Arts in Paris where he got awarded the bronze medal. More recently at the 2017 Triennal in Chamalières or again in the context of « Impressions 2017 » in Barbizon.
The artist's etched work is profuse, a real graphical narration offering a finer point, pointing out the artist's imagination with spontaneity and obvious freedom, mixing his own phantasmagoric visions to an academic background, blending humor, irony and existential anxiety. He is totally accepting spacio-temporal gaps correlated to fantastic worlds. Don't get wrong even if his work seems crazy, the artist addresses meaningful issues where he is firmly commited to shift towards a different world. We are convinced you'll be happy to share with us Jullien Clément's work.
