Julien Segard

Julien Segard’s (b. 1980) work explores the severe edges perpetuated by urban structures, free flowing contours of nature’s invasion into these structures and the shared intimacy that grow into each other’s spaces and claim each as their own. In recognizing characteristic paradoxes in the field of view through his work, Segard reveals glaring blind-spots in our vision of the landscape and builds a thread of connections through works on paper and paintings. Much like portraits of a city, the slivers of roads, underpasses and flyovers that populate Segard’s work stand as evidence of a possible life in the wastelands of a megacity.
