Jacques Vesery
Maine, United States
“There are threads that keep us connected to varied layers in life and I am linked to my work by them. Born under the sign of aquarius I am always a part of water, sea and ocean. I have lived above and below the waves that couple me to the spirit in what I create and there is a vertical line binding sea and sky to my subconscious. This is where I store things that are second nature...color, balance, proportion, attention to detail and numbers... numbers that are the glue holding all this together. The threads are the nature of me...I see threads everywhere with magnified detail.”
Jacques Vesery is an Artist/Sculptor from Damariscotta and has lived in Maine for over 20 years. Striving to create an illusion of reality, his vision and inspiration begins with repetitive patterns derived from the 'golden mean' or 'divine proportions'. The marriage of pattern, form and proportion conveys a sense of growth from within each of his pieces. His work is in numerous public and private collections including the Detroit Institute of Art, the Contemporary Art Museum of Honolulu, Yale University Art Gallery and The Carnegie Museum. He is a Maine Arts Commission Fellow for 2000 and received the title of “Master Craft Artist” and lifetime membership from the Maine Crafts Association in 2011. Jacques has lectured on design and concepts within his work in France, Italy, England, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and 28 US states at such locations as Journees Mondiales du Tournage D'art Sur Bois Congres, Loughborough University, Anderson Ranch, `Aha Hana Lima- Hawaii and Haystack Mt. School. !!He has been included in over 25 publications including ''100 Artists of New England'' released in the spring of 2011. Other books include 'Scratching the Surface', 'Wood Art Today', 'Natured Transformed' and 'New Masters of Woodturning’.
