Jean Clareboudt

Back to 80's Archive

Jean Clareboudt (1944-1997) was the first sculptor with whom I made prints. From him, I learned that sculptors lay their ideas on paper very differently from artists. For him, a piece of paper was not just a surface, but a subject in itself. In searching for his composition, he was both highly sensitive to the print medium and to the stone’s organic nature, as well as to marks, signs and other technical details that are part of the printing process yet invisible in the finished product.
