Luco Cormerais



Luco Cormerais started out as a stone sculptor, but since 2012 he has also been working as a sculptor on paper, which he cuts in a unique way with repetitive cuts and then stretches to create a three-dimensional graphic composition.
Luco Cormerais rethinks the aesthetic approach. The work appears as an undulating structure that emits light. A passionate student of quantum physics and philosophy, Cormerais gently and poetically arranges the particles like waves in a field. In a work of contemplative emotion, he seems to stabilise the dance of atoms.


Luco Cormerais was born in 1961 in Nantes (France). After a classical education and studies in modern literature, he decided to pursue an artistic education and studied at the Conservatoire du Cinéma français in Paris and at the École des Beaux-arts in Beauvais. He then worked for several years as an assistant director in the advertising industry. In 1991, he settled in French Polynesia, where he developed his work as a sculptor.
