Jean Jacques Porret

Belle du Soir - Cast Bronze, Edition of 3, 20 1/4 in.

Jean Jacques Porret is a contemporary sculptor, born in Switzerland, in 1941, to a prominent family of art and antique collectors. He began sculpting wood at a very young age. He was soon drawn to and learned the technique of bronze and lost wax casting, because “because it is the most demanding material which is responsive and sweet to the touch.” Porret's work is figurative but as he explains, it is not about the figure. "I consider myself an expressionist as I am more interested in communicating an abstract feeling or idea than an actual image."

Jean Jacques Porret keeps his studio in Chicago, USA.
