"Corinne Jullien offers us a seemingly harmless universe, evocative of tales and legends, following the falsely clumsy lines of illustrations for children’s literature. But all this is only an appearance, a cover for a more subversive purpose.
His universe is of a disturbing familiarity, close to the disturbing strangeness, the Freudian Unheimlichkeit.
The artist reflects back to the viewer the reflection of his own story, an image that is at first disturbing and then becomes his own once identified.
The distance is achieved by the use of large formats, apparently incompatible with the intimacy of the figurative scenes, and by the imposing presence of the main character, rigorously centred.
But this is only a lure, a deceptive trap, because anyone who dares to enter this work is immediately caught up in his own point of view, forced to use his imagination to fill in the spatial and narrative gaps, to tackle his own mythology on that proposed by the artist."
