Joël Froment studied from 1961 to 1968 at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris with Gustave Singier and in 1968 won the Rome Prize for Painting. As a result, he exhibited continuously in France and Italy. Froment is considered a neo-constructivist whose works are strictly abstract geometric. Initially he created monochrome sculptures until he discovered painting for himself in 1973. Intensive exploration of colour followed. From 1985 onwards, polygonal shapes were created that can be divided into a black, a white and a coloured phase. During this time he also participates with the Salon de Réalités Nouvelles. Froment has been based on Robert Delaunay since the mid-1990s, using curved lines and a similar arrangement of colours. When it comes to the play of materials and shapes, Froment primarily prefers circles and triangles. Until 2008 he was the President of MADI International.
The work “Light and shadow” breaks with the usual geometric colour surfaces that can be found in most of Froment’s other works. On a brown background, he horizontally glazes gray and yellow with increasing and decreasing intensity. The overpainted colours repeatedly shine through and create a new effect Shimmering and movement. Froment sets the highlight of the brightness with two white horizontal lines flanking a light yellow stripe.
Froment’s works are in private European and American collections, as well as in museums such as the Louvre in Paris or the Museum of Art in Dallas.
