Guy Leclef is a paper artist. Rhythm, balance and aesthetics play a leading role in the creations through which he has developed his own unconventional language and technique. The result is richly expressive and coherent works of art that impress.
Leclef makes his way through paper like an explorer, looking for order in the chaos, and, by harnessing his innermost emotions, creates a fascinating paper landscape with an existential dimension.
The artist is constantly looking for new interpretations and forms of expression to take paper in new directions. By tearing his material into strips, then folding, moulding or cutting them up again, he has developed an impressive range of styles and ideas.
Looking at his poetic landscapes, we discern craftsmanship in them, but in reality he is searching for sublimation through the flow of planes, shadows and tints in infinite nuances and colours. However, in the end, it's the paper that tells its own story.
