Currently working and living in Brooklyn, New York, John Clement studied under acclaimed sculptors Marc di Suvero and John Henry in the early 1990s. His work follows a similar tradition of large-scale, Constructivist-inspired sculpture, yet breaks boundaries within the genre by constantly playing with the ideas of form and space in curvilinear compositions. His forms have a profound effect on the spaces they inhabit; they becomes fixtures for the community and encourage both physical and mental exploration, enhancing one’s experience with and understanding of the artwork.
John’s sculptures consist of brightly painted circular forms of coiled and welded recycled steel pipes, creating bold yet playful statements, drawing attention and inspiring imagination, thereby truly flourishing in the public realm. Structurally sound and surface treated with high performance protective coatings, John’s work is meant to withstand outdoor elements and remain safe and secure.
Over the past twenty years, John has focused on creating large-scale public installations, with his work being represented nationally and internationally in cities such as Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Vancouver, and St. Urban, Switzerland.
