In the wake of the French philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre, the existential writing of Albert Camus, the American painting of Jackson Pollack, and the New York art movement that occurred in Greenwich Village in the early 1970ÂsÂthere lies Jean-Pierre Mulot. Both generally French and particularly American, MulotÂs work brings the excitement and agony of French existentialism to the heightened sensibilities of the visual arts in America.
PURPOSEÂ Absurd, yet not nihilistic, MulotÂs work represents a meaningful expression of a world devoid of meaning, filled instead with the conformities of a shallow, consumer oriented society.
STYLEÂ MulotÂs works tell a story, not in parts, but whole. They may be entered into at any point, none better than another, and the eye is never able to rest, but is constantly in motion, following the line. They are inspired by poetry, and may be read as poetry as well.
SIGNIFICANCEÂ MulotÂs work stands on its own as more than a mere artifact from a particular historical momentÂthough it would be a grave mistake to discount its historical significance. Rather, it marks a permanent place for itself as it questions manÂs place in a world otherwise created for love.
MEANINGÂMulot approaches many of our human endeavors as grotesque absurdities, imposed upon a nature, a world, which was not made for them. Our politics, religions, patriotisms, even our modern views of sex and endless entertainments, abominate the world we live in, rather than enhance it. Mulot remains relevant as long society continues to pursue these conditions.
