Jacques Bodin

WEBSITE

Jacques Bodin, painter, lives and works in Levallois Perret, France.

He is one of the main representatives of the European hyperrealist current.

His paintings are made from his own photographs which are reworked with digital tools and then projected onto the canvas using a video projector.

The realization of large formats requires several months of work.

He explores some favorite themes such as grass, fruits, hair, still lifes or vegetation treated with a genuine attention to detail.

The subjects are mostly treated in close-ups, under indirect lighting.

On the frontier of minimalism, some of his works bear witness to a conceptual aspect of hyperreality.

The apparent hyperrealist frontality of the foregrounds is contrasted with the diffuse aspect of the backgrounds in which we distinguish lines of flight which break the graphical order of the canvas, a dual focus hyperrealism in a way.

The first glance focuses on the meticulous aspect of the realization while the eye is lost through the more abstract forms of the background.
