Junior Fritz Jacquet is a Parisian plastic sculptor and painter passionate about nature, his main source of inspiration, besides everyday life. He’s specializing in creating masks, plants, statues, and hangings in relief made out of paper and other materials. In this ongoing series, Jacquet shapes intriguing and expressive faces from toilet paper rolls.
Humans and Nature are at the heart of Junior Fritz Jacquet’s work, which can be found in his installations and his main series, including: Masks, Cinnamon Man and Plants. By sculpting these simple symbols, specific to humans in their universal dimension, he shows us the poetry of the elements and tells us about life and origins. The Masks represent very expressive and singular faces. Their earthy appearance is accentuated by a few colorful touches of natural pigments which give the paper a metallic appearance. Le Bonhomme Cinnamon, the emblematic work of the Sculptor, is a mysterious faceless being whose emotions are revealed by the body. The lightness of the character contrasts with the solidity of its plastic. Through this series, the artist pays homage to his roots. Les Végétales, like an ode to nature, brings together a rich collection of complex sculptures that bring the paper back to its origins.Junior Fritz Jacquet
