Gérard Ducret, sculptor

Gérard Ducret has been a sculptor for some 30 years, and although faithful to wood his material of choice, he also sculpts in stone and bronze. Nonetheless, he likes combining wood , stone and other materials in his representational and abstract compositions.

He often goes out to sculpt the snow and ice in the Alps, and although he loves sunshine, warmth and walking barefoot in the mountains, he never stays away from his light-filled workshop for very long .He has dabbled in many different methods including wildlife art.

His passion for his art grew at the same time as his quest for meaning and ‘this’ comes more and more from within, the hand following, holding the tool. His current themes revolve around man and his condition which he addresses with humour and at times a ferocious tenderness.

Apart from formal recognition and his passion for his art, what makes him keep going is the emotional impact people feel when they look at one of his sculptures, a kind of fraternal bonding of the heart and position in the face of human existence.
