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.
