Jean-Patrice Oulmont

 Jean-Patrice Oulmont's sculptures and their delicate simplicity resonate with the sobriety of "Black and White". The wood raw material is smooth or rough and, still it has kept the silent vitality of the tree from which it sprang. This vegetal brother, by slow maturation and after its sublimation by the gaze of the artist, becomes a sculpture. "The sculpture does not exist until it is not brought to completion. This result can be expressed as a relationship between the strength of the work's inner architecture and the lightness of the sensation expressed with a high sensitivity " wrote J. P Oulmont. We find the back here, as between the black and white, the same tension between outside and inside, the full and the empty. The spirit enters into deep communion with the matter.
