"Bench Talk" Bronze Sculpture by Jean Jacques Porret, circa 1976

US$5,700Asking Price


Signed and dated 1976. Jean-Jacques Porret is a creative sculptor that specializes in crafting breathtaking contemporary bronze sculptures. Since the late 1970s, his work has been on display all over the world, from Chicago to Japan and Switzerland. Collectors and art aficionados enjoy his abstract sculptures, noting that his creations evoke the movements and grace of a ballet dancer. He is also known for his amazing outdoor sculptures that have been placed in a variety of environments, adding a unique and distinctive touch to urban areas. Using the lost wax technique, Jean-Jacques is able to make his bronze sculptures move. His works are not about the figure, but when you view one of his outdoor sculptures, you'll notice that the human form seems to leap out to you. This movement is described by Jean-Jacques as "rhythm in space."
