The self-taught sculptor, installation artist and draughtsman François Bouillon, who was born in 1944 in Limoges, came to notice in the early 1970s through an unusual art praxis. When talking about his works, the artist refers to “instruments”, thereby suggesting that his work complies with both a material and a mental organization. Reckoning that painting was unsatisfactory (he abandoned it once and for all in the early 1970s), Bouillon creates incongruous objects which are usually the outcome of associations of often natural materials (earth, stone, fire) and organic materials, either heavy or lighter. If the artist is interested in ethnology and archaeology, this is to bring to the fore what our modernity turns its back on, a form of rituality which finds part of its meaning in the slow preparatory processes of the works. Bouillon, whose works are regularly shown in Europe, also teaches at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in Paris.
B, some light discoloration on the edge of paper and soft bumps throughout from age. Very good vintage condition.
