Et si les cerises pouvaient parler...

Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée, 13 Promenade des Anglais, Nice, France

Thursday 31 December 2020

Pour moi le rêve est la porte ouverte sur la création : il me paraît donc essentiel pour un Artiste de pouvoir rêver. Mais certains évènements douloureux de la vie nous font perdre notre part de rêve. Une lourde intervention à cœur ouvert en 2007 m’a fait basculer dans le monde de la souffrance ; ma capacité à rêver s’en est trouvée altérée ; je la crus alors éteinte.
Plusieurs mois s’écoulèrent ainsi … Puis vint le temps des cerises. Quelques cerises à regarder posées là sur ma table d’atelier… la simplicité et la pureté de ce fruit me remplissent soudain d’émotion : sa couleur « rouge » si chaude, qui évoque le sang, la vie fragile et éphémère comme celle du temps des cerises, ses formes si pures qui empruntent les courbes du corps humain. Des cerises porteuses de renouveau et de printemps … Des cerises à manger, non par faim mais par gourmandise, rien que pour le plaisir…Lentement, très lentement, et grâce aux Cerises le rêve réinvestit ma vie.
C’est pourquoi j’ai décidé de faire des cerises « mon » symbole de Vie : présentes dans toutes mes nouvelles créations, j’en fais aujourd’hui ma seconde signature.

Né en 1956 à Nice, Jean-Louis LANDRAUD est autodidacte. Ses bronzes ont une base figurative, mais il va jouer sur la fraction des corps, sur les vides, leur donnant une grande légèreté qui contraste avec le matériau. Cet "appel d'air" nous happe vers le haut, dans une démarche onirique qui rend l'invisible quasiment palpable et tangible. La beauté conjugue ici présence et absence, exprimant la complémentarité des corps oscillant entre le matériel et l'étéré.
La scupture de Jean-Louis LANDRAUD est lyrique avant tout et prêche, tout en jouant sur le vertige des sens, pour un parfait bonheur des sens (Nice matin 26/0/99)

"Pour moi le rêve est la porte ouverte sur la création : il me paraît donc essentiel pour un Artiste de pouvoir rêver. Mais certains évènements douloureux de la vie nous font perdre notre part de rêve. Une lourde intervention à cœur ouvert en 2007 m’a fait basculer dans le monde de la souffrance ; ma capacité à rêver s’en est trouvée altérée ; je la crus alors éteinte.

Jean-Louis LANDRAUD (Mai 2009)

"To me, Dream is the open door to CREATION : Dreaming then, becomes essential for an artist.
However, paintful events in life can shut off the part of dream inside us.
A heavy open-heart surgery in 2007 turned my life into a world of suffering. My dreaming ability was affected. I thought it was forever turned off. Months went on this way...
And came cherry blossom time. A few cherries laying on my workshop desk to look at... the simplicity and purity of this fruit suddenly filled me up with all kind of emotion : its « red » color, so worm, recalling blood, a fragile life fleeting like the cherry blossoms, its shapes so pure following the human being curves...
Cherries bringing springtide...cherries to eat not for hunger but for greed, for pleasure only...
Slowly, very slowly, thanks to the cherries, Dream reinvested my life again.
This is why I choose the cherries to become « my » symbol of « Life » : a part of all my new creations from now on, I make it my second signature..."

Jean Louis I have collected art for many years and I have many of your sculptures in my collection. I rate your work very highly. The significance of the cerise in the formulation of your sculptures is a wonderful reflection on life. Your sculptures are always the art works that visitors to my house home in on. I have had the directors of both Sotheby's and Christies for dinner in my home in Ireland and they rate your bronzes highly. I wish your every success in the future and you remain one of the most underrated artists I have collected. Your works have brightened many homes. Keep up the good work and hopefully you will be recognised in your lifetime for what you are. A master sculpter. You are up there with the best of them. Madame de la Baum fresco and le fruit are masterpieces.

Magnifique! Très fort et emprunt d'une belle leçon de courage face aux épreuves que nous donne la vie. Belle route avec ces cerises...

Mr. LANDRAUD, my husband and I were recently in Nice dining at Le Chantecler and noticed the sculpture on the tables. Upon a closer look I realized that I purchased one of your pieces in 2000. The piece is "Reves" and was cast on June 27, 2000. Some of your work was in Mr. Gabriel Mariani's studio in Peillon and he regarded your work highly. "Reves" has given us such pleasure over the last decade and I'm so happy that you are so successful with your work. Warmest regards, Mary Alice Hinshaw Wilmington, North Carolina USA
