Russell Jacques' sculpture and paintings can be found in prominent museums, corporate and public art collections throughout the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Mexico, Holland, England and Nova Scotia. Now, you can also enjoy his new works here in Newport Beach, CA. at Bayside.
A native New Englander, Jacques received his BFA from Boston University and completed post graduate studies at Westfield State College for Massachusetts teacher certification. After spending sixteen years in the public school system, he launched his full time career as a sculptor and painter. He has exhibited at the National Academy of Design, Allied Artists of America, and the Audubon Society in New York City. His many credits include the Whitney Museum of American Art, The National Gallery of Nova Scotia, The National Ballet of Canada, and the Boston Ballet Company.
Jacques approaches his paintings in much the same way as he designs his sculpture. Line, form and quality are very present and important in his work. His bold use of color is balanced by unique compositions and movement within each piece.
