    Dye transfer, 2003
    Frontier Draw
    edition N ° 3/8

    After his stint at the Beaux-Arts in Paris, Joël Ducorroy chooses a medium that determines his interventions and his works. Using license plates on which he stamped words, Ducorroy limited himself to designating colors, shapes, patterns and their details, objects or their elements.
    A plate of the same format can thus become "View of Prague", "Abstract painting", "Sea" or "Red": the writing calls for the collaboration of the reader and his imagination, but one cannot wonder about this. that there would be to see (we not) since "it is written above". Each work interweaves the explicit and the enigmatic.

    Neither pop nor conceptual, Joël Ducorroy describes himself as a "plaquetitian artist" (...) The material, beyond its rigor, thus opens onto a puzzling poetic.

Joël Ducorroy

France Born in: 1955
Born in 1955, Joel Ducorroy discovered an artistic vocation quite early.

In 1969, he produced serigraphs inspired by Andy Warhol, who he meets him later on. He continues his studies at the Beaux Arts in Paris.

In 1980, Joël Ducorroy met Serge Gainsbourg with whom he exchanged a few mischievous words like « Et cetera, c'est adéquat ». He records it and stamps it on a mineralogical plate.

An original journey of words begin. According to the painter, there is nothing more real than these words for his painting, a world without a brush but with humor and hints. "Express rather than represent! Reading is like understanding a painting!". The artist doesn't impose his vision on the world in fact he invites the spectator to create his own analysis.

On J-C Lange's suggestion, a friend of Raymond Hains, he takes up the name «artiste plaquetitien».

A conceptual humorist, with an approach referring to Fluxus, pop art or new-found realism, he's a collector of words who plays around with art.

Along the way, he revisits various forms of artistic expression (painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, engraving ...) and takes us towards a world with characters, nature, butterflies in the moon light.
