Jurga Martin


All Jurga's works fascinate by their vitality, an incredible accuracy of their attitudes, expressions, a great sense of humour, charm and simplicity. These are the evident echos of the success of sculpture which is representational and contemporary at the same time.

How not to succumb to this fascinating charm of terracotta whose rough surface deploys yet such humanity! How to resist the saga of these characters with such an evocative force full of simplicity, tenderness, gaiety or sadness.

The expressions, gestures, attitudes reflect a profound knowledge of a human being no matter social conditions or age. And this is what reveals the talent and highlights the immortal discipline which is sculpture.



André Ruellan, art critic











Tous les personnages de Jurga fascinent par leur vitalité, la justesse incroyable de leurs attitudes, de leurs expressions et de la superbe sensation d'humour, de charme et de simplicité... que des échos manifestes de la réussite d'une sculpture on ne peut plus figurative et néanmoins parfaitement de notre temps.

Comment ne pas succomber au charme fascinant de ses terres-cuites dont la surface rugeuse déploie pourtant une telle humanité! Comment ne pas se laisser captiver par cette saga de personnages statufiés avec autant de puissance évocatrice, gorgée de simplicité, de tendresse, de gaité ou de peine.

Les expressions, les gestes, les attitudes reflètent de la part de Jurga, une profonde connaissance des êtres de toutes conditions, de tous âges, un révélateur imprégné de talent et qui regaillardit cette discipline immortelle qu'est la sculpture.

André Ruellan, critique d'art

















Creating larger size type of sculptures has always been a great passion for this sculptor. For Jurga, this is an art form through which she can bring more life, fervor and liberty to her surroundings and space. Jurga, was born in Eastern Europe and she is known to many for artwork is rich in emotions, letting nothing get passed her. Her techniques express, from the moment she lays her hands on the clay, bubbling energy as she works with passion to translates it into beautiful, vivacious and unique sculptures that you can see for yourself, in our Gallery.

All of her sculptures are characters that emanate vitality, incredible accuracy of a human being’s various attitudes and their expressions, be it of great feeling of humor, charm and simplicity, or thoughtfulness, serenity... echoes we all feel at one point or another and they are timeless.

Art Critic : André Ruellan

How can one not succumb to the charm of these fascinating terra-cotta sculptures …their rough surfaces bring an undeniable reality to humanity and life itself. We are captivated by the saga of her characters / sculptures…they stand there like statues yet they convey with great success such evocative power, but with such simplicity, tenderness, gaiety and even sometimes sadness.


The sculptures’ expressions, gestures, attitudes reflected through Jurga, demonstrate her profound knowledge of beings from all walks of life and all ages; she is a genuine designer of infused talent in the art medium of sculptures not always simple to ensure it immortality

“Jurga herself is always very moved by the expressiveness of her characters, especially children because they truly are difficult to convey through sculptures.”
