Combining a color print with an aluminum sculpture, this artwork's composition draws from the forms and colors of nature. The vibrant hues of blue evoke the feeling of clear water and sky, while various coastal flora can be discerned in the outlines of the metal. The directional arrows in the negative space seem to convey a landscape under transition, asking the viewer to see the sculpture as a manufactured sign with contradictory and unresolvable meanings. The artist drew on his experience as a French-Caribbean to create this work—in particular, the lemon that adorns the sculpture calls to mind the citrus fruit of the islands.
Julien Creuzet creates amalgams of sculpture, installation and text that intertwine visual art and poetry. His work frequently addresses his French-Caribbean heritage and his own diasporic experience. Drawing from the tradition of poetic and philosophical reflections on creolization and migration, Creuzet’s work examines the impact of European modernity on the history of Martinique.
