Hyperrealistic paintings of hair by Paris-based artist Jacques Bodin. A difficult subject to tackle because of the intricate detail, the large-scale works are executed from photos that are projected onto the canvas using a video projector.
My work explores diverse subject themes such as fruits, hair, grass, trees and is organized in the manner in which I capture my subjects and depict them with meticulous attention. Approaching minimalism, some of the works embark on a conceptual aspect of hyperreality. My paintings accentuate photographic deviations from reality (depth of field, wide angle, lighting, and focus anomalies) to create a hyperrealism reference.
