New York-based artist John Clement's first solo exhibition at De Buck Gallery opens in New York
For Fireflies, Clement has created a large-scale site-specific installation for De Buck Gallery.
NEW YORK, NY.- De Buck Gallery announces an exhibition by New York-based artist John Clement, entitled Fireflies. The exhibition is on view at the gallery from June 12 to July 25, 2014. Fireflies marks Clement’s first solo exhibition at De Buck Gallery.

John 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 works, the exhibition provides a compelling overview of the transformation of Clement’s vocabulary through size, scale, color and shape. 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.

Born in New York in 1969, John Clement discovered sculpture while working at the School of Visual Arts after graduating with a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 1992. A student of prominent public sculptors Mark di Suvero and John Henry, Clement’s work has been exhibited and installed worldwide, including recent installations at the Garrison Art Center (Garrison, NY), Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA), Elon University (Elon, NC), and the Frost Art Museum (Miami, FL). He is also represented in anumber of permanent collections including the Heckscher Museum (Huntington, NY) and the public art collection of the city of Long Beach, CA. John Clement currently lives and works in New York City.
