Jean Claude Rigaud

"Working abstractly, my sculptures are basically geometric and inspired by architectonic forms that are drawings in space. Like many contemporary artists, I am as concerned with space as I am with form. The open areas become an integral part of the composition, to be given equal importance with the enclosing line. This has been one of the most important departures from classical sculpture taken by artists in this century. I use to full advantage the freedom that constructed sculpture has given me, enabling me to move away from carved or cast solid form and to work freely into space through the use of welded metals and their tensile strengths. It is constructive rather than a reductive system." - Jean Claude Rigaud
