Jim skull sculptures. (FR)
Cordes naturelles, cordes de papier, crins de cheval, coquille d’œuf… Autant de matières utillisées par Jim pour créer ses sculptures..
It is in Koumac in New Caledonia that the adventures of Jim, our skull artist, begin. It is also a gateway for Oceania
and many other horizons. He goes to New Zealand, stops over Vanuatu, discovers Australia, India, and lands in Hong-Kong.
Human experiences, cultural, ritual, he is marked by his travels and encounters.
Back to Paris, we are in 1976. He enters Estienne School, then the Applied Arts School Olivier de Serres.
1980, he creates his first skulls. His vocation is now revealed and will never leave him.
He holds exhibitions in Parisian bars, takes part in the Salons d’Art, improves his technique… creating the refined result we know of today.
Contemporary art, African, Oceanian, Amerindian, popular, religious… multiple passions and a melting-pot of influences
