Art is like life it shouldn't be so serious
Francois Xavier Lalanne
The instinct of the iron... Fed with the scrap metal, the lock in medallion, Jean-Marc Martinez, artist metalworker maintains a constant duality between a constructivist avant-garde and a classicism in which our eyes perceive in filigree, statuary is a duality built between the instinct and the reason, between the classicism and the avant-gardism; it is the trademark of Jean-Marc Martinez This intimate marriage of the sensitivity and the gesture which makes the greatness of the artist.
I think Sculpting is a job, but for Martinez, it's craftsmanship that has content.

His statuary is a duality constructed between instinct and reason, between classicism and avant-gardism; it is the hallmark of Jean-Marc Martinez. This intimate marriage of sensitivity and gesture that makes the greatness of the artist.
It is the iron that dictates the shape of the whole; of these pieces of metal which look like nothing, but which already have the features of what does not yet have a figure, which are chosen, combined for their affinities with the emerging volume.
To ward off the void, the artist manipulates the most diverse formats and materials. His personal story made of small details and great adventures, plunges us into an enchanted cosmogony.
