Dominique Rayou

Born in 1957 - France


Dominique Rayou is a self-taught French sculptur. He started to sculpt in the '80s, after discovering the work of a friend.

Dominique Rayou illustrates this dual requirement and that consideration of the human and the abstract, the visible and the invisible, the actual presence as affective as well as a reflection on which we are still uncertain. The theme of the human body is privileged, not in its entirety, but by focusing on the creation of partial representations : hands, arms and especially busts, alone or in pairs.

Figuration itself is associated with geometric shapes that materialize somehow mental projections of the artist. His work then joined naturally our own concerns and ideas, the search for harmony in shapes and proportions and a more abstract fragmentation, the attention of the artist to our human condition, our emotions and our aspirations.
