  • About the artwork

    Peinture à l'huile sur toile
    Signée en bas à droite

    « De saisons en saisons, mon œuvre se construit de façon polymorphe autour des représentations de l’humanité. Je m’interroge sur les densités, la démographie, les familles, la répartition des communautés et groupes qui la constitue et sur ce qui crée la cohésion (rituels, contes, mythes, transmissions...) ou au contraire qui la brise ou l’entrave (mouvement des peuples, exils, émigrations...).

    Je m'interroge aussi sur la question du genre : le masculin et le féminin peuvent-il être encore définis comme des genres distincts? Mes sources sont matières vivantes, documents sonores, écrits filmés… De l’histoire individuelle aux grands chocs et mouvements collectifs. J'utilise la toile comme un espace de lâcher prise, mon tableau se construit toujours au fur et à mesure, dans un processus d'improvisation. L'improvisation n'étant possible qu'en ayant auparavant accumulé des "outils" forgés par les émotions, les connaissances, les expériences.

    Depuis quelques temps, je complète cette œuvre picturale par un travail graphique : le dessin, la gravure et par la reprise du travail du textile. J'élabore des broderies dans lesquelles je mêle dessin et travail du fil; elles sont directement inspirées de mes peintures. Ces broderies sont réalisées sur des pièces de tissus ou des pièces de vêtements souvent anciens, usés par le temps. Les broderies apportent à ma recherche une dimension intime et poétique. »

Hélène Duclos

Born in: 1974


Emergent Artist

After her studies in textile creation at école Duperré in Paris, Helene Duclos went on a journey of six month in a little sailboat linking Vannes to Dakar.

Once she came back to France in 1996, she settled down in Montpellier, and joined "Arboretum", a collective of artists and began to paint. Then she co-founded Cairn and Compagnie, an entertainment company in which she made up the costumes and decor. Her artistic research gave birth to installations. Her encounter with Helene Laflamme was decisive.

She was welcomed at Laflamme's workshop in Crest, Drome where she learned about the techniques of oil painting on wood coating. She decided to devote herself to painting: work with colors, materials and surfaces with limitless potential, a process of mysterious and vast creation.

She finished training with Xuan Chieu, a master lacquer in Vietnam in 2003.

Gradually she developed a unique language which slowly expanded in the field of painting, drawing, engraving and contemporary embroidery.

Through her works, one can observe the relationship between human beings, between love and heartbreak, between fawn and various creatures, metaphors of our desire and, fear. Her work is profus and complex. She uses different supports and scales: from miniature to very large formats.

A head-spinner architecture, going from tragedy to comedy. A complete immersion in painted, embroidered and drawn work.
