About the Artist

About Jérôme Blanc

Jérôme Blanc was born in Geneva in 1978 and grew up in a family keen on promoting creativity. He became acquainted with manual labor at an early age in the locksmith shop of his father, who is also passionate about boat restoration. After five years of study at the School of Arts and Crafts in Geneva in woodworking and carpentry, obtaining his degrees in 1998 and 1999, he started travelling abroad. His creations are characteristically experimental, and his new pieces are perfect illustrations of his sources of inspiration - the natural world and design in the urban environment. Jérôme cuts into masses of wood using the lathe to sculpt his works which in their final form weigh no more than a few ounces. Many hours of calm concentration are needed to refine each piece to give the wood a fine soft quality. The impeccable results of this long process are works that speak of serenity, simplicity and clarity. Jérôme Blanc is resolutely an artist of his times, demonstrating a deep concern for the environment and the need for modern man to return to a state of greater simplicity – preoccupations which are clearly reflected in his creations.

He regularly takes part in exhibitions in Switzerland, Europe and the United States. His works have been acquired by various public and private institutions, such as the Musée Départemental du Bugey-Valromey, The Center for Art in Wood in Philadelphia and the AAW Gallery of Wood Art in St Paul, Minnesota.
