Clémence van Lunen’s new ceramics, by their exaggerated volumes, their dilated shapes, give to this declination of Succulents (variety of cactus) an aspect with funny, mischievous, and jubilant shapes.
These compositions are defying all academic proportions, by the many areas of raw earth, and which appear in the middle of an enamel that runs like a sap flow in a sweetened colour.
Avoiding all lessons of realism, Clémence van Lunen shows the power of imaginary evocation, remaining in a permanent state of questioning as to the representation of the artistic form and, fortunately, without ever giving us any answers.

In the series Succulentes Clémence van Lunen shows the immense pleasure she takes in modelling these voluptuous, exuberant forms, and the power of irony with which she continues to create, it is probably not without reason that Clémence van Lunen is first and foremost a Belgian artist.
