The gallery will feature a series of three hand lacquered sculpture – screens: white, black and coral. Each sculpture is 77” in height by 108” in length. Other pieces on display continue Jarrige’s dialogue between form and space.
Jacques Jarrige is an exceptional contemporary French artist, with a studio and collectors well-established in Paris. The artist is represented exclusively in the U.S. by the Valerie Goodman Gallery. A video link of Jarrige at work may be explored via http://vimeo.com/

ABOUT VALERIE GOODMAN GALLERY
Valerie Goodman Gallery was established in 2010 to introduce emerging contemporary French artists working with objects and furniture to American audiences with the goal of promoting beautiful and joyful living environments. Prior to opening the gallery Valerie Goodman worked with acclaimed New York art dealer, Tom Thomas.
Collaborating with decorators, collectors, galleries, institutions and foundations the gallery is looking to foster meaningful international exchanges. Valerie Goodman gallery opened with an exhibition of Bohemian glass and bronze vases by Eric Schmitt, followed by two exhibitions of work by Jacques Jarrige in 2010 and 2012.
Valerie Goodman gallery also represents Sylvain Subervie’s masterpieces in wrought iron and rock crystal, Pierre Bonnefille, master of texture and color and Cristina Salusti’s exceptional work in stoneware and gold. Each artist represented at the gallery has established a strong individual vocabulary to produce work that is meaningful, collectible and timeless.
