Works and lives
Louis Jacquot is an artist who graduated from the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris (2020). His practice evolves in a back and forth between the drawing book and the canvas, between the canvas and the studio space. His large paintings with rounded corners are the result of drawings transferred onto the canvas, in the manner of ancient painters. Everyday objects, interior scenes: a bed, pillows, trestles, are all sources of an expression of lines or marks. Playing with perceptions, effects of enlargement and displacement, the artist deploys a work protocol characterised by the production of stretchers lined with light fabrics, on which he applies multiple layers of a mixture that allows him to obtain a unique metallic juice. He was recently a finalist for the Emerige Revelations Grant (2021). In 2022, Louis Jacquot completed a residency at the Weiss Endowment Fund, which dedicated his first solo “Check 1 2 1 2” (2022) to him and a diptych by the artist joined the Societé Générale Art Collection. In Spring 2023, he presented “Jeopardy”, his first solo show at DS Galerie.
