Over the past twenty years, Jacques Owczarek has made a name for himself with collectors as one of the most talented sculptors of his generation.
His singular and immediately recognizable "forms" as he calls them have traveled all over the world, from Paris to Shanghai, Abu Dhabi to New York, London and Moscow, praised and sought-after as pieces of a remarkable body of work.
Offering a unique and unprecedented visual vocabulary on the artistic landscape, the self-taught artist clashes, surprises and stirs emotions with a razor-sharp truth, a no-frills sincerity that mirrors his sculptures. The soul – anima – is the inherent driving force of his astonishing animals that incarnate, no matter what angle you view them from, a striking verticality that is is received by the artist and recreated as if by "magic", a word dear to Jacques Owczarek.
Here the material is taken far beyond itself, bursting with life, the essential, and the purity of line tells us just how obvious beauty is and how it raises us to our true selves.
