Combining the ancient art of Japanese paper folding with the immutable nature of stone, French sculptor Régis Chaperon brings beauty and an unexpected twist to the folds of his elegant sculptures. Using pure and simple lines, the stone appears to have been carefully creased and bent, transformed into intricate expressions of reality. By continually exploring the geometric constraints within his work, Régis injects an utterly modern approach to stone sculpting with this unusual marriage of origami and stone.
Régis started working in stone at 17. His natural sensitivity for form led him to Carrara, Italy and later to the University of Valencia, where he became engaged with contemporary concepts of art. His sculptures are now in private collections in England, France and Spain. He has public work in Germany and Italy and has carried out public and private commissions worldwide. He has also become involved with urban and interior design, bringing together his artistic vision and his considerable technical knowledge of working with stone.
