Dominique Rayou is a French sculptor who began his passion in carrier at the young age of 20. As a self-taught sculptor, he had his first exhibition in 1981 and earned the first prize for his work.
Rayou illustrates as a means of working with various elements of the human body – focusing only on a partial area: hands, arms, and especially busts, alone or in pairs. Through this he portrays the human body as an element of abstract composition, allowing the viewer to reflect and imagine their vision. Rayou uses various materials to induce curiosity – from wood, marble to bronze. Through the direct cute into the stone, for example marble, he releases the natural beauty of nature, revealing its colors and shapes. In more recent works, Rayou has used bronze to realize some of his art pieces, capturing a new dimension all together.
