Born in 1953, Yvon COCHERY lives and works in the Eure- et – Loire department. After a practical formation at the family owned workshop, (carving, etching and marble-marquetry), Yvon COCHERY broadened his artistic searches to stone, glass, bronze and resin. In its early stages, COCHERY’s work accentuated a tormented representational expression. Today, curves are omnipresent, volumes become considerable, revealing an immoderation which goes beyond realism although being still associated.  Monumental, uncluttered volumes emphasize the playful facet of his sculptures. Profusion of bodies and body parts open new prospects to our imagination, and expresses love of life as much as a light-hearted, fun, mocking and tender spirit.
