Jean BOURDIER was born in 1956 in Villeneuve sur Yonne (France)

 

It has been about twenty-five years since he set up his workshop in Burgundy , in the "Saône et Loire" area (about 300 km south of Paris).

He was trained in drawing, watercolours, painting, woodcarving, soldering, decorating and scenography.

His means of expression, when he started, were mainly watercolours and woodcarving. He had already given free rein to his imagination. His watercolours were light, his shapes had baroque movements , and were symbolic; all were close to surrealism.

Then, bit by bit, Jean Bourdier gave up pure watercolours for mixed compositions by blending painting and carving. He uses multiple techniques and materials : oil and acrylic paints, inks, oil and soft pastels, collages ranging from Japanese paper to corrugated cardboard, wood and different metals.
During this period he created "wall sculptures". Colour appears in his wooden sculptures in the round.

Since 2007, the multiplicity of his technical experience led him to create composite sculptures, according to his imagination or creating for special orders, where pieces built in his wokshop, contemporary or antique objects (restored or not), live together in harmony.
Unique works for professionals, companies, public commissions, galleries,and individuals.

Each creation is a dialogue between past and present, humour and poetry.
