Jacques Jarrige’s work over the last thirty years has always focused on the dialogue around the relation of person and objects. In all of his endeavors from sculpture, to design and fabrication of objects for the home, to independent artistic interventions; he has sought to find a balance between disparate qualities of artist, viewer, and object.
In each medium, a sensual, often hesitant line strives to embrace an elusive volume. The tension between minimal solid shapes and expansive open space is at the heart of his three-dimensional expressive drawings in which he feels it is the medium that dictates his every move. At the end with the artist’s process retained in the object he invites the viewer to freely continue the dialogue.
Piermont Straus Gallery will showcase his drawings, sculptural jewelry, miniatures and documentation of process. Gallery Owner Valerie Goodman will open her home in Piermont to present the interior design work of Jacques Jarrige.
