Jean Louis Corby - Geometrical Elegance


It is through the cohesion of movement and mind
that the Corby figures adorn themselves with
a geometrical elegance that induces their feelings
  
From his studio, the sculptor Corby
discreetly observes the great human
fraternity.

Attentive to everything, he
analyzes physical and moral behavior and
adapts the plastic of movement to human
psychology. Better than a long speech,
through the work of volumes and shapes,
his hands sculpt a figure always the same,
stateless, active, avid for existence.


It is
through the cohesion of movement and
mind that the Corby figures adorn
themselves with a geometrical
elegance that induces their feelings.

It is also through a technique that is
willfully rigorous, direct and precise that
Corby concretizes uncertainty,
unhappiness, joy and suffering both
great and small.

His figures assert themselves as human,
sincere, realist and very present. With
no possible hesitation, we all recognize
ourselves, man or woman, no matter, it is
the same story with the same existential
concernal.

Beyond this delicately portrayed
sensitivity, the immobility and silence
so characteristic of statures are felt not
as petrifaction of body and soul but as a
message of tolerance and humanity.

His art, resolutely figurative, testifies with
a sure hand by sculpting the “right words”
of life, without pointless embellishment.

Corby leads us to discover ourselves as in a
mirror pierced by remembered tenderness.
From earth and bronze, mind and flesh, his
figures revive an astonishing curiosity in
ourselves while awakening in us all
numerous echoes and memories.

With the door of his studio always open on
the world, Corby passionately sculpts the
profound values of existence.
