Further Biographical Context for Jean-Luc Deru

Born in 1957, Jean-Luc Deru's creative work was largely influenced by the 1970s. The 1970s were a period of consolidation and progress in the arts, most often characterised as a response to the central tensions of the previous decade. Conceptual art developed as a influential movement, a partial evolution of and response to minimalism. Land Art took the artwork into the sprawling outdoors, taking creative production away from commodities and looking to engage with the earliest ideas of environmentalism. Process art combined elements of conceptualism with other formal considerations, creating esoteric and experimental bodies of work. Expressive figurative painting began to regain importance for the first time since the decline of Abstract Expressionism twenty years before, especially in Germany where Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz became highly influential figures worldwide. New York maintained an prominent position in the international art scene, ensuring that international artists continued to gravitate to the galleries, bars and downtown scene there. International movements gained importance included feminism, which translated strongly into the visual culture, and photorealism which had begun in the 1960s and enjoyed substantial commercial and critical success. For the first time painters and sculptors from Latin America were embraced by the dominant critical and institutional levers in New York.
