JOHN CLEMENT

John Clement est né en 1969 à Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvanie. En 1992, il obtient un Bac en arts visuels de l’Université de Pennsylvanie à Philadelphie. Clement récupère des tuyauxd’acier industriels qu’il manipule et soumet à la torsion pourcréer des spirales métalliquesplus grandes que nature qu’il peint dans des couleurs chatoyantes. Ses sculptures font penser à des dessins à la ligne qu’il aurait réussi à transposer dans l’espace. La notion espace-temps est d’ailleurs un concept qu’il questionne dans son œuvre. Les sculptures de Clément s’intègrent harmonieusement dans leur environnement, qu’il soit rural ou urbain.

Artiste de renommée internationale, les œuvres de John Clément sontexposées et collectionnées à travers le monde.

John Clement vit et travaille à Brooklyn, New York depuis 1993.
