Artist of the moment……..Clement Lemieux

 

Clement Lemieux is an artist who is renown for his extraordinary and fantastic use of color. Clement Lemieux was born in Levis, Quebec, Canada in the year 1946. His sculpture work usually involves a figure expressing some kind of emotion.

For instance a work containing three members of a family might be interlocked with their hands in a circle showing a great sense unity and faith of one another. Lemieux then adds color to the work to add an additional feeling of emotion and movement.

In this clip we visit a show featuring the work of Clement Lemieux:

What I enjoy most about this artist is his use of color in his sculpture. Much of his work is done in wood and then painted with acrylics. Its very unusual to see an artist so great at creating forms in sculpture, that has such a fantastic use of colour.

His use of urethane paint, the same used in most automotive paint, greatly obscures the fact that his carvings are made carved out of wood.
