SCULPTURES & DRAWINGS

by Jean Leyris

May 24 to July 6, 2024

 

Plant life and human presence. The work of Jean Leyris calls for calm and pleasure, a peaceful atmosphere surrounded by composition that imposes a fascinating energy, a charcoal window on the world.

As part of a rich and varied artistic career, Jean Leyris deploys his art in a different typology, neglected in the 20th and 21st centuries, that of bas-relief and high-relief, which responds to his need to "bring drawing into relief".

Based in Provence since 1976, the artist explores the boundaries of art, developing subjects traditionally reserved for drawing and painting, capturing the depth of reality through his love of nature and Provencal landscapes.
