De Buck Gallery is currently hosting an exhibition by New York-based sculptor John Clement, entitled Fireflies Clement’s artistic language, which entails a spirited geometry of curving forms and gaping voids, embodies an evolving interest in capturing and interacting with both viewers and the environment which has been a cornerstone of the artist’s work since the 1990s.

For Fireflies, Clement has created a large-scale site-specific installation for De Buck Gallery, bringing what would typically be an outdoor, public work into the white cube of the gallery space. Juxtaposed with small and medium scale sculptures, the exhibition provides a compelling overview of the transformation of Clement’s vocabulary through size, scale, color and shape.

John Clement Awho

Installed together, the effortless and endless variation of curves and negative space on multiple planes seen throughout Clement’s works implore further exploration on the part of the viewer. In the artist’s hands, the thick tubes of steel with which he works seem weightless and even mobile, molding the perception of the surrounding space.

Hey, remember when you used to see Stikman everywhere? I haven’t seen him as much around NYC recently, but I did spot this nice Stikman Stencil right outside of Jonathan LeVine Gallery’s West 23rd Street space. So, I thought I should snap him. Stikman Lives!
