René COUTELLE (Sarthe 1927 – Paris 2012) is a continuation of stonecutters. Attentive to the choice of its materials: marble, onyx, serpentine, alabaster and granite, but also wood, oak, walnut, and exotic woods such as rosewood or ebony. Following Gaudier Bzeska, Brancusi, Zadkine, Manolo, Coutelle cuts freely in materials carrying a force which is that of “their right feeling”. The sculptor adds that with the novels, Caribbean art, African and Cambodian art, he rediscovers a simple poetry to express, suggest primitive and natural beauty from volumes that provide harmony and fullness, density and accuracy. His sculptures are inhabited by a serious and fair song, fervent in unison with his language. He disguises, with modesty, the original interior thrusts transposed into forms that aspire to blossom in space, the receptacle of an ascensional dynamic characteristic of his sculpture. His theme of Torses, Couples, Birds, lends itself to the simultaneous metamorphosis of the respective bodies in a voluptuous movement. The curves emit a vital fluid for a mutation, whose momentum inscribes the natural movements. Slow and subtle waves that are subject to its forms, emerges a poem, sensual, which combines the spirit to the dream, the intelligence of the touch to the musicality of the stone. Lydia Harambourg, Excerpt from the catalog “73 SCULPTORS, Second Biennale of sculpture”, Property Caillebotte, Yerres, 2009.
