    Oil painting on canvas Signed lower right Hélène Duclos depicts an epic human fable placing man at the center of the chaos of the universe. It brings together man, child and animal and offers a bittersweet reading, making an interior journey built in transparency that tries to reconnect people. […] “Hélène Duclos' painting is not a dramatized or 'expressionist' representation of being, but rather a determined desire to ascend to this summit of 'truth', where soul and body come together. A “snatch” ascent, convulsive certainly, but always controlled, constructed, conscious and responsible in its “involvement” towards oneself and others. "- Didier Hansi," Hélène Duclos, un art implied ", Artension n ° 31 September / October 2006" From seasons to seasons, my work is built in a polymorphic way around representations of humanity. I wonder about the densities, the demography, the families, the distribution of the communities and groups which constitute it and on what creates the cohesion (rituals, tales, myths, transmissions ...) or on the contrary which breaks it or the 'hindrance (movement of peoples, exiles, emigrations ...). I also wonder about the question of gender: can the masculine and the feminine still be defined as distinct genders? My sources are living materials, sound documents, filmed writings… From individual history to major shocks and collective movements. I use the canvas as a space to let go, my painting is always built as it goes, in a process of improvisation. Improvisation is only possible by having previously accumulated "tools" forged by emotions, knowledge, experiences. For some time now, I have been completing this pictorial work with graphic work: drawing, engraving and the resumption of textile work. I create embroidery in which I mix design and thread work; they are directly inspired by my paintings. These embroideries are made on pieces of fabric or pieces of clothing often old, worn by time. The embroidery brings an intimate and poetic dimension to my research. "- Hélène Duclos

Hélène Duclos

France Born in: 1974 Emerging artists
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.
