Jean-Pierre Gerome was born in 1950 in Lyon. He started sculpting in his father’s studio as a child and then became a professional sculptor in 1982.
After having worked and experimented with many materials (wood, pewter, earth, stone, plexiglass, assemblies, plaster etc...), he decided to focus on wood. His work is based on the unconscious, the waking dream, poetry, nature, and the myths of creation from around the world.
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.
