Olivier Julia
Equilibre architectural I no. 1/15 - contemporary modern abstract wall sculpture

2018

$900

About

Equilibre architectural I is the second of two free standing contemporary modern abstract wall sculptures from the Architectural-series by French-Dutch artist Olivier Julia. This sculpture is made from carefully cut, glued and sanded wood fiberboard elements that are finished with Olivier's signature mixture of anthracite grey and bronze acrylic paint. This series investigates the spatial effect of rotation of exactly the same elements that are mounted together in a different way. Although the artist prefers the sculpture to be positioned as shown in the images, it can be placed in different ways to the liking of the observer too. Due to the bronze in the acrylic paint, changing ambient light causes changes in the intensity of the grey colour. Each free standing sculpture in this series comes in an edition of 15 and is delivered with a carefully designed limited edition monography highlighting some of his other works. Olivier Julia (1952, France) graduated with a BA in Graphic Art from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Until recently he held a tutoring position in graphic art at the same academy besides practicing as an independent artist. Since his retirement from the academy he works as a full-time visual artist. Originally his work consists of sober graphic art and monumental drawings, but in more recent years he has explored the dimensional possibilities of graphic art. He creates three-dimensional objects from wood, often painted in subdued colours that are characteristic of his earlier work: differentiated shades of grey and deep blacks. The work of Olivier Julia is focussed on the subtle interaction of closed versus open, of vertical versus horizontal and of light versus dark. His work is exhibited internationally and is part of many renowned corporate and public collections such as ING, KPN, TNT Post, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, Vaasa Museum Finland, Royal Library of Brussels, the Wilploo Collection and the MAL Collection. Furthermore his work is part of numerous private collections around the world including Europe, the USA and South America. His work was selected for the main Dutch abstract-geometric and constructivist art exhibition Symposion 2015.
