In his work as a metal sculptor, Jacques Dieudonné maintains the meticulousness of the engraving and embossing techniques used in metalworking and jewellery making. The simplicity of his monumental works allows the material to be admired and expresses his spiritual approach.
Metal is my passion, it is worked with strength and respect.
For about fifty years, Jacques Dieudonné has dedicated his work as an artist to creating in his preferred material: metal. Since 1974, he has been creating jewellery-sculptures, small sculptures for the body made of precious metals, gold, and silver, and embellished with diamonds, rubies, and other precious pearls. He is also interested in modeling clay, molding, and the beauty of bronze, brass, and copper. In 1985 he established his workshop at the foot of the Black Mountain, near Toulouse. He then left small formats and precious metals and became interested in brass works: his creations gained momentum. His long-repressed spiritual quest, far from sculpture, finds convergence, symbiosis, unity... in what some call "sacred art," a term he refutes because, for him, all art touches upon man's spiritual quest.
