Jacques Jarrige (b. 1962) lives and works in Paris, France. He engages in ongoing experiments with humble materials and forms. His vigorous pieces of furniture reflect the impulsivity of drawings in space. His aluminum and brass sculptures reach new monumentality while retaining their distinctive vital purpose. He studied architecture at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts before abandoning formal education. Since 2010 he has been represented by Valerie Goodman Gallery in New York.
