Four monolithic ceramic sculptures works of Hervé Rousseau (born 1955) , two of unwrought stoneware and two of glazed stoneware with thick milky white enamel and ash texture from the flames.
Works and lives at La Borne.
All works signed. Dated from 2015 and 2019.
Unique pieces.
Respective heights 80, 70, 50 and 40cm or 32 inches , 28 inches 20 inches and 16 inches.
Fired with full flame in a Naborigama wood oven for six days.
These pieces are marked by the artist’s gestural imprint. Rough-bodied blocks, landscapes and torsos, marked with thumb, palm and foot imprints.
His sculptures are looking like magma, mineral, eroded, archaic, brutalist, exploded, cracked, alive, mysterious.
He traveled in Africa (Togo and Mali) in the 1980 and 2000. These trips are «initiatory» trips where African potters become major players in his sources of inspiration.
Of great rudeness, his work show the interaction of his body and his hands with the organic matter.
Highly appreciated and respected on the French scene since the 1980s thanks to galleries faithful to his career including that of Hélène Aziza in Paris , Hervé Rousseau has seen a growing international consideration with exhibitions in particular in Great Britain , Belgium , Germany , Japan , and China where he resided with other French artists to contribute to the establishment of a museum of French ceramics.
