A passion for sculpture

Jean-Claude Hirtz Posted: september 22, 2011 / Modified: september 23, 2011
A passion for sculpture Sculpt, file, chisel
Whether your dream is sealed floating

In the block-resistant.


To understand the works that I sculpt I have to book some of my inner being: My sculptures are an expression of my conscious and my subconscious so well described by the physician and psychologist Carl Gustav Jung.
As others write, verbalize, compose or paint, I sculpt to exist. My moods are expressed in creative impulses. What I'm trying to convey in my work is made an intense inner life of contemplation, ephemeral, of wonder, questioning and also in doubt. In love with beauty, aesthetics and spirituality, I am drawn to the Buddhist doctrine. I feel close as the writings of Nobel laureate Hermann Hesse (*) and the poet Alfred de Vigny Parnassian (**)
Create a sculpture, starting from the rough stone is an obvious pleasure and real satisfaction. Take the hammer and chisel, begin to remove material and see the work gradually worked out a process thought is eminently enjoyable.
The egos that our human condition develops, makes us believe that we are important. And yet, if we deign to watch even if the extent of the heavens and the cosmos around us, we are little in the vastness of the universe. In addition we are only passing through. And we have so little time to watch, admire and observe the beautiful vegetable and mineral nature around us.
Man is creative. His hands, wonderful tools, can be the vehicle for his ideas and participate in the creation of a multitude of ways. But the one area that will enable man to perpetuate his time on earth is the field of art, whether literary, musical, pictorial or sculptural. What remains of the civilizations that preceded us, is what they gave us the artistic and we can still admire today.
The beauty, aesthetics and purity should be a permanent goal for those who want to create. Beauty is what elevates man. This concept must be permanent in our thinking and become the guiding principle of all creation. Sculpting is primarily trying to convey to inert matter a little of his soul to try to infuse beauty, harmony, enthusiasm and life.
Sculpture is often a difficult and delicate at first. Everyone must take time to close, watch, understand, and sometimes vibrate with emotion in front of a sculpture that its author knew so well understand the world in three dimensions. A sculpture is bathed by the light that surrounds it. The sculptor has to be impregnated by this evidence. It is even in play. That is to say that it must, if only at the level of forms and reports surface, always having in mind that light and shadow will be captured by the work he is to achieve.
Hirtz Jean-Claude (*) For Hermann Hesse, being an artist is to create forms, search for laws and formulate ideas to come anyway to fix something that has more life than ourselves. (**) For Parnassiens art need not be useful or virtuous, its sole purpose is the beauty ..

Une passion toujours liée au jeu de la lumière. J'aime la notion de passage, d'émerveillement et partage avec vous une attirance sans réserve pour le grand Hermann Hesse. Bonne route sur votre chemin!
