Alain Clément

Born in 1941 - France

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1941, Alain Clément lives and works in Nîmes and Paris, France.

The uniqueness of Alain Clement's work lies in the close relationship that he establishes between painting and sculpture, a relationship enriched by printmaking, a medium he is particularly keen on.

Like drawing, printmaking allows him to clarify his research related to space through an attention to the accuracy of his lines. The paradox in this exercise is the fact that two-dimensional space - the sheet of paper or the canvas - becomes a field of experimentation for sculpture. When Alain Clement was working on reliefs on murals, he was speaking of color in connection to the volumes, and color disrupted the plane. Today, he still assigns this role to painting, but it's more about its graphic dimension.

His strokes, lines, ribbons and frames organize the space, they deny it, force it, dig holes in it, in a profuse body of work, that exceeds formal issues and affirms the expressive and polysemous power of painting.
