Transformations, visions, incarnations, ascents, locomotions, explorations, peregrinations, excursions, stations, cosmogonies, phantasmagoria... lithomorphoses, metempsychoses, apotheoses and other things...
…or how the subtitle of Another World, the most famous work by J.J. Grandville, could easily be placed on the work of Clément Vuillier.
The Year of the Comet recounts the destruction of one world, and the genesis of another. The dazzling passage of a meteor around a planet triggers a series of cataclysms and transformations on its surface. Soon, the ice and the stone covering the star give way to volcanic and bubbling activity: plant forms emerge from the ground, grow, take color, throb; the waters become moving, agitated, and the waves break under the swirling clouds...
Virtuoso author of this silent and magnetic tale, Clément Vuillier directs here a graphic symphony teeming with details, with a dizzying force and beauty.
