Exclusive U.S. Debut of Groundbreaking French Furniture Artist Jacques Jarrige at Valerie Goodman Gallery
Jarrige calls himself an artist-artisan and with skills evocative of Alexandre Noll or Jean Royere, he creates unexpected, unconventional, spirited organic forms with both new and traditional materials such as bronze, aluminum, wood or glass.
NEW YORK, NY.- Opening October 26th, 2010, acclaimed French Furniture and Lighting artist Jacques Jarrige will exhibit for the first time in the U.S. at Valerie Goodman Gallery, a European 20th Century and Contemporary Decorative Arts gallery located at 315 East 91st Street in New York City. The exhibit will be made up of tables, stools, chandeliers and lighting fixtures which capture the whimsical fantasy of Jarrige’s finest work.

Jarrige calls himself an artist-artisan and with skills evocative of Alexandre Noll or Jean Royere, he creates unexpected, unconventional, spirited organic forms with both new and traditional materials such as bronze, aluminum, wood or glass. For this exhibition, Ms. Goodman will recreate Jarrige’s atelier in Paris where bends, curves, shapes and then finishes his distinctive pieces with bright colors, lacquers, inlays, gold leaf or patinas. Jacques Jarrige's search for balance between positive and negative space is on-going but he always has in mind the functional aspect of furniture. French critic Jerome Goddeau said: “His pieces are always distinctive and timeless; with a smile, Jarrige imbues everyday objects with a unique sense of serenity and comfort.”

Jacques Jarrige’s talent like so many prominent artists of the 1980’s including Garouste and Bonnetti or Eric Schmitt emerged from the scene of “En attendant les Barbares” Gallery.

A list of notable solo exhibitions follows:
1989 Entrepôts de Bercy, Paris
