Sébastien Touret

Sébastien Touret is a French artist born in 1950 in Blois. Sculpting for Sébastien Touret is to dare removing from the material what it was hiding: an idea. It is also keeping a freedom that leaves space for the raw and primary force of matter. Sculptor of instinct and secrets, his work makes up to create upright, free and serious figures. These characters coming out from his hands are like presences that accompany and question. With his statues and with the restraint of those who know how to look in silence, the artist sharpens our senses. He created with Jean Touret, his father, the former altar of Notre-Dame-de-Paris.
