CURZON (85), France
I was born in 1950 in Lyon. I started sculpting in my father’s studio from childhood, then continued to work permanently, and became a professional in 1982.
After having tried many materials (wood, pewter, earth, stone, plexiglass, assemblies, plaster etc...), I decided to focus on wood. My work is based on the unconscious, the waking dream, poetry, nature, the myths of creation of the world.
I work with wood chisels, in exchange for wood.
Self-taught, Jean-Pierre Gerome trained himself through practice, learning, rigorous exercises of "perfect" forms, figurative studies (animals, masks, statuary, architecture etc...), observation of my elders.
