Jacques Jarrige

Jacques Jarrige grew up in an artistic milieu in Paris and briefly studied decorative arts. But it was the confrontation with African sculpture, the works of Henry Moore, Jean Arp, George Nakashima and Alexander Calder that turned him into a sculptor and furniture maker. In 1991 he had his first exhibition at the influential avant-garde design Galerie En Attendant les Barbares, soon followed by shows at the Frederic de Luca Gallery and other prominent showcases for artist furniture.  

From his participation in a group show at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Hamburg in 1994 on to the present, Jarrige's work has been extensively shown at major European institutions, among them the French National Archive of Visual Arts (CNAP) where his Osselet stool is currently on view as part of the highly acclaimed exhibit “Les Oracles du Design." 

Since 2010, Jarrige has been represented by Valerie Goodman Gallery in New York where his monograph The Searching Line was published in 2013. His work is in the collections of Mobilier National and the Musée des Beaux Arts in Orléans.
