“Jacaranda” is the name that the sculptor Gérard Sarrouy gave to his workshop in Sintra where he worked for twenty years.
“…When I return from a voyage, I undertake my work immediately. This is a rigorous and solitary work…
Objects appear one after another without any pain other than the dissatisfaction which certain forms solicit and which drives me to refashion my work until it becomes an “object of desire”. I never do the same sculpture twice. I like to explore the unknown.” (in the catalogue “Metamorfoses de pedra” 1995).
