Mediums Used

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.

Régis Chaperon’s work has increasingly evolved from the figurative style to include abstraction and design. The pure and simple lines combine with the use of textures, creating contrasts between the polished finish and the natural break of the stone. Everything is aimed at revealing the beauty of the material, guided by fundamental concepts such as: dynamism and sensuality. It is important to Regis that his sculptures should be an approachable medium than everyone feels able to relate to.

ORIGAMI & STONE

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 works of art.

By continually exploring the geometric constraints within his work, Régis injects an utterly modern approach to stone sculpting with this unusual marriage: the delicacy and magic of origami, coupled with the meditative nobility of stone. The light and ephemeral casts of youth granted the weight and the dignity of age. The transitory transformed, and given the gift of permanence.
