Jean-Marie Appriou


Jean-Marie Appriou is a French-born artist who creates textured and expressive sculptures, objects, reliefs and installations. His artistic process touches on an expansive range of cultural references – some mythical, some near kitsch. Though Appriou’s principal mediums are ceramic and metals, he also incorporates a mix of such materials as salt crystals, fabric, and glass into his works. Their often-raw finish and heavily worked surfaces evoke the touch of the artist’s hand and the process of their making, which is greatly informed by a hands-on, experimental and organic approach.
