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.

Resolutely abstract since ever, Louis THOMAS d'HOSTE's sculpture combines a quest for spiritual perfection with the seductions and the sensuality of forms, slowly conducted toward the roughness or softness of their marble skin. Here,  rigour and even essential simplicity of the shape is projected onto the stone since its initial conception. These sculptures soothe. They tell us about their author's calmness, gentleness and obstinate intention of celebrating life. They vibrate with a human and cosmogonic spiritual presence amplified in infinite echoes inscribed in the marble’s delicate quivering. They invite the touch of a caress.


 We are very sorry to announce the death of Louis Thomas d'Hoste. Born in 1922, Louis was devoted body and soul to his art and has showed a serene conception of existence. He has never been his age and has always sung youth and life with optimism, even when he announced us, some time ago, the terrible disease that was finally to prevail. Also, we received the news of his disappearance with as much sadness as astonishment. Louis Thomas d'Hoste leaves a magnificent work, which fully agree his conception of existence.

Paris on February 7th, 2018.

‟ For me a sculpture must have a vitality of its own. I don’t mean a reflection of the vitality of life, of movement, physical action, frisking, dancing or agonizing and so on, but that a work can have a pent up energy, an intense life of its own, independent of the object I may represent. When a work has this powerful vitality we don’t connect the word beauty with it. Between beauty of expression and power of expression there is a difference of function. The first aims at  pleasing the senses, the second has a spiritual vitality which for me is more moving and goes deeper than the senses. Because a work doesn’t aim a reproducing natural appearances, it is not, therefore, an escape from life but maybe a penetration into reality, an expression of the significance of life, a stimulation to greater effort of living.”
