GOSTI Jean-Yves, sculpture

Biography

Jean-Yves Gosti was born on July 2nd, 1960 in Paris.

He obtained a BTS Plasticien Volume and also trained at the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d'art, Olivier de Serres.

For a long time, Jean-Yves Gosti's life was like a reconstruction site, just like his early sculptures: assemblages of stone chips to which he tries to give life, homogeneity, coherence and above all feelings. As basic materials, stone is essential in his work.
He carves certain elements that he then casts in bronze, whether it is the head alone or the whole body. He then assembles these pieces separately or uses them to form a new sculpture by combining other elements in marble, basalt or granite.

Jean-Yves Gosti also likes working with rusty metal. He leaves the cutting of the material rough in order to offer to the glances a collided vision. Because the sculptural effect always prevails, he draws with his flashlight like a painter with his brush: drawings in space where shadows prevail over volume.
