Don Jacot

Garbo's, Huile sur toile, 66/90 in., Louis K. Meisel gallery, New York

Les toiles de Don jacot donnent à voir un des plus ahurissant fourre-tout qui se puisse concevoir. Mais ce bric à brac ne doit pas être confondu avec je ne sais quelle installation postmoderniste. Le propos de Don Jacot est autrement plus pertinent.
Au travers de ces chaotiques entrelacs se pose la question de notre perception de la réalité. Une réalité qui fait l’objet d’un télescopage permanent entre le paysage urbain qui lui sert de décor et le monde minutieux et souterrain des objets de collection patiemment mis en scène dans leurs vitrines.
Tout l’art de Don Jacot est de nous permettre de recevoir et d’encaisser un tel flux d’images comme un tout homogène.

What is real ?
Jacot, Donald(San Francisco, CA)
Symposium New Ideas in Built Environment In this presentation

I will demonstrate, through slides of my photorealist oil paintings, my evolution from a faithful landscape portraitist into a constructor of fictionnal still-life environments . And I will explore the meaning of reality in realist, photorealist and hyperrealist painting. When oil paintings are done with the aid of photographs, is this a violation of our sense of fairness about depictions of reality or can it lead to an enhancement of our visual sense, which improves our awareness? When alterations are made to the subject matter of photographs used for the painting, is this again an impingement upon our certainty of what is real? Or could it be seen as license to guide our perception into new capacities for hyper-awareness and an elevated appreciation for what is around us ? My paintings successively telescope from a macro view of the grand urban landscape about us into a subterrean closeup world of small, beautiful objects found in shop windows. When objects are linked and composed into themes by their arbitrary or intuitive selection and placement in painting, is this mere artifice of
« reality » or should it be thought of as a creative kind of reality of the mind, sometimes whimsical, sometimes serious, which could be no less plausible, no less fantastic than what « really » take place ?
