Jacques Rieu's sculptures are realized in the most diverse materials: marble, limestone and granite, or modeled in clay, and numerous works are sculptured in diverse wooden essences (yew, elm, sequoia). Materials are chosen to perfectly fit the forms.
We discover or rediscover forms, extremely varied volumes, which develop tense and pure curves, present polished or rough surfaces, and show mysterious cavities, or sometimes complex associations.
Rieu explores and draws his own way with a talent which belongs only to him. I wish you to go fast to judge it by yourself.
