Lot 68 - Clémence Amette - Maximum
Ink on Paper
Signed on Verso
Curated by Lee Sharrock
Clémence draws life, words, images that cross her head and heart. Her works seem to come directly from the diary that she began at a very young age, without knowing the basics of academic drawing. Here, she finds her expression, confiding her moods and questions, in sketches and texts. Today, it delivers a look at the everyday and the exceptional, like catchy slogans. Compulsive, she creates without constraint, without censorship. Intuitive, she plays with the accidents of life and graphics... and even frames her spots of white so that they can breathe. The result: an enormous dose of humanity, tenderness and sincerity in red and black, or blue, direct tones coated on grain papers with a thick and comforting touch. Clémence Amette does not seek to please. Clémence seeks the pleasure of ink and line, the association of a gesture and a sign. Her sensitivity was first introduced to words, then to images and concepts bequeathed by the poster designers of Russian revolutionary art, of Pollock's action painting, but not only, she also counts among her inspirations and masters, the automatic writing by Henri Michaux, acting by Cy Twombly, and photographic montages by Irving Penn.
