Product Image    YVES CLERC

Yves Clerc lives and works in France and in the United States. It was through photography that he made his first steps into the world of the image. 
He pursued his medical and scientific studies in Paris in parallel with his artistic studies at the School of Applied Arts in Paris, where he specialized in drawing. 
He works around the idea of appearance and representation kept in a distance and in a displaced figuration.

Well known for his hieratic women placed in boxes, he weaves a draped universe, gowns, and fabrics which are all illusions. The artist’s main quest is the painting itself. His works seek to capture the impression of silence and the brightly coloured range of light.
