Jean-Pierre Ghysels

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium dedicate an exhibition to Jean-Pierre Ghysels (Uccle, 1932), a Belgian sculptor who studied with Zadkine at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris. Over the years, he has established himself as an essential figure in Belgian contemporary sculpture.

His works, even when they are small, continue to surprise us with their monumentality and sensuality. The works in the exhibition reflect the impressive extend of the sculptor’s oeuvre. The body of work has been conceived in close collaboration with Colette Ghysels, the artist’s wife, with whom he shares a passion for travel, tribal art and ethnic jewelry.

Recognisable by their fluid and abstract style, the sixteen sculptures have their own singularity and have in common the particularity of having been conceived and created to be examined from all angles. Jean-Pierre Ghysels’ creations are the result of a dialogue with the material, an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
