Art Description

Sculpture: Steel on Stainless Steel.

"Sweet Dreams" is a medium scale, stainless steel sculpture with a concrete base. It is the first piece in a series of water-jet cut pieces in stainless steel derived from sketches of existing works and the shadows they cast. It was inspired by the desire to pull the lines out of 3D works and transfer them to a 2D format.

A student of such acclaimed artists as Marc di Suvero and John Henry, John Clement’s geometric work follows in a similar tradition of large-scale Constructivist-inspired sculpture, and yet breaks the boundaries of the genre by constantly playing with the ideas of form and space in curvi-linear compositions. His work juxtaposes a variety of playing steel coils and arcs that, layered on top of one another, take on a life of their own. While today Clement focuses primarily on large-scale outdoor work, reminiscent of both di Suvero and Henry’s association with public sculpture, his smaller works are, on their own volition, about to swivel about on their bases and spin about in space. Clement’s dynamic and dramatic union of form, line and negative space emphasizes the impression of implied movement. After receiving a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992, Clement studied briefly at New York’s School of Visual Arts before moving on to work with di Suvero and Henry in the 1990s. In addition to numerous gallery exhibitions, Clement has also completed many public commissions and installations across the United States and abroad. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY
