Jacques Bodin (FR)

Jacques Bodin is a photorealist painter. His work accentuates photographic deviations
from reality (depth of field, wide angle, lighting, and focus anomalies) to create a
hyperrealism reference. Subject matter includes extreme close-up views of exacting
images cast in shadow through reflective lighting. His paintings, generally of extremely large
dimensions, are executed from photos projected on the canvas from an episcope or
videoprojector. He works in diverse subject themes such as grass, fruits, hair, trees and
vegetation and is exceptionally organized in the manner in which he captures his subjects
and depicts them with meticulous attention. Approaching minimalism, some of his works
embark on a conceptual aspect of hyperreality.
