Jargot

(Nanterre, France, 1972)

"Loneliness, expectation, contemplation, doubts and certainties are the unifying themes of my work on the body. I then try to establish a communication between the spectator and my representations and thus bring up a question."

Having graduated from the Toulouse Art School in 2001, I paint since several years parallel to my work as graphic designer. Being subject to specifications put up by the clients, I find my own rules and my own fields of expression while painting. My paintings, inspired by the work of Bacon, Rebeyrolle, Zao Woo Ki or other neo-expressionist painters, are a sum of memories, of emotions, left "on the sensitive layers of my brain". Body passing from one state to another, tense body, waiting body, inactive body: they are like a crowd of strangers, of looks, of memories, of furtive moments and verbal exchanges. I want them to be mysteries of the existence, of the ephemeral, of the movement and the stagnant. My characters display themselves like freeze frames before the next state. I then look for the essential, the vital energy which circulates in the moment "T". Loneliness, expectation, contemplation, doubts and certainties are the unifying themes of my work on the body. I then try to establish a communication between the spectator and my representations and thus bring up a question.
