Hyperrealistic Paintings by Jacques Bodin
- Caroline Kurze
Jacques Bodin is a french hyperrealist painter who lives and works in Paris. His works draw focus on the photographic deviations from reality in depth of field, wide angle, lighting, and focus anomalies, creating a hyperrealism reference. His paintings, generally of extremely large dimensions, are executed from photos projected on the canvas with a video projector. Jacques explains: ‘I explore diverse subject themes such as grass, fruits, hair, trees and my work is organized in the manner in which I capture my subjects to depict them with meticulous attention.’ Approaching minimalism, some of the paintings embark on a conceptual aspect of hyperreality.
