About

Superposition urbaine is a medium size contemporary modern sculpture painting relief by French-Dutch artist Olivier Julia. It is made from wood and mdf, with the front side finished with his well-known mixture of anthracite grey and bronze acrylic paint. The back has a partly bright yellow and partly bright red paint finish creating subtle colour reflections on the wall. The work hangs slightly free from the wall, it creates a floating visual experience. Due to the bronze in the acrylic paint on the front, changing ambient light causes changes in the intensity of the grey colour. Furthermore, different viewing angles result in different relief patterns. This relief is one of an edition of 30 that was made by Olivier for the occasion of his solo exhibition in December 2019 and the presentation of his new 200+ full colour pages monography celebrating his 40th anniversary as a visual artist. From the original 30 available pieces, following his solo exhibition, only 3 were left for international collectors of Olivier's work, and this is one of them. Superposition urbaine comes delivered including the limited edition monography. 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.
