Jean-Patrice Oulmont is an autodidact artist.
Since his childhood, he carefully observes Nature with love and meticulousness.
Poetry, philosophy and sciences are mixed.
His sculptures are not figurative but come from his dreams and meditation and leave always room for the expression of the wood he works.
Tree becomes for him the mirror of our own human complexity.
Carving the wood, hollowing or arranging in layers, cutting without hurting it, passing on his emotion while leaving the wood shape.
Either massive or light, his work breathes, his work contrasts smoothness or roughness.
Even subjected to fragility of the balance, his sculptures retains its organic appeal, animated here and there by knots.
