Jacques Kédochim, French painter, begins his artistic training at the vine workshop within the prestigious school of Etampes, led by Philippe Lejeune. He discovers there the requirement of academic and classic knowledge transmitted in a traditional way, the difficulty but also the exhilarating dazzling of the work alla Prima. He then joined the Academy of Port-Royal (ex Académie Julian)- of which He will release Grand Prix in 2015 - where he acquired the mastery of composition and colors, freedom increased in the transposition of realities and develops the work of materials. If his portraits and by their organic and direct character, it is above all its scenes urban mark by the intelligence of their composition. Sarry entitled "urban mirrors" is this particularly bewitching title. Real and unreal it provokes the disturbing feeling, this feeling of having already experienced the painted situation. Clutten passages, bay windows, lamps ... Like the memory of an earlier life, we believe everything to recognize of this reconstituted landscape by superimposed filters where the silhouettes in motion become ghostly, where. The painter works his composition. Then he inserts the color, balances the colored masses, adds, removes and replaces the visual elements. The pattern, the flatness of colors fight with the figuration and the clear line. The strata accumulates, combine, intertwine to form a single assembly. The artist digs the sense buried towards memorial refuges where the real rubs shoulders with the approximation, and the deconstruction that of the representation. The spectator, confronted with the accumulation of plans and the "disorders pictorials "sparse with shimmering colors, walks in the fabrics and lets himself be caught up in their dreamlike and timeless character which inscribes them in a filiation with the themes dear Edward Hopper. Jacques Kédochim is a member of the Taylor Foundation, French artists as well as the Fall Fair. He is a member of the international movement figurative destructuralism.
