Book launch: Joe Jbeily, sculptor (bilingual work)
“Sculpting has opened the door and paved the way for the expression of beauty which is tracked in our emotions and which I modelled in matter”
– Joe Jbeily
Glowing and quivering, the sculptures presented by Joe Jbeily in this book unfold in harmonious, delicate and undulated nuances. The artist loosens, warms up and awakens the emotions that lie within a variety of fine wood, bronze, and frozen stone. They are sent to us in enchanting waves. He lets his wild imagination, boundless creativity and undeniable talent take over.
In this book are more than 100 imposing and mysterious pieces of work carved by hands connected to his soul, polished and lacquered with deep emotions. They delight us with the themes they evoke, the graceful curves of their impulses, the suggestive whirl of their steel wires, the variety of exotic wood from which they are carved. It is, however, their creator’s magic that seduce us.
Joe Jbeily has become an absolute master of his art. He commands respect, invites us to dream and introduces us to the worship of beauty.
