Organic forms, deep colours, fluidity of lines, nature-like textures: the sculpture by French wood-turner and Loewe Craft Prize finalist Marc Ricourt distinguishes itself for the mastery of his technique, the pronounced edges of his vessels, and the overall feelings of strength and passion rising from his series. In his works, there is no attempt to hide the tool marks. The roughness belies the control required to make such consistent cuts, emphasizing the aesthetic balance between shape, colour and texture. For PERENNI, Ricourt presents three sculpted wood objects in beech and walnut from his iconic series Scorched and Rust: the warm sunlight entering the space of the Pavilion from the large windows adds a poetic inflection to these pieces, which are originally worked in such a way to appear as something else. In the case of the Rust series, for example, the artist applies ferrous oxide to the piece's surface, providing the wood with visual and tactile qualities of materials like corten.
