Jérôme Brillat: Perspective at the service of hyper expressiveness

Jérôme Brillat: Perspective at the service of hyper expressiveness

To discover Our artists We love / 21 Aug 2018

Dynamic, dizzying, twisting and erupting. A world in ascent, where a bouquet of architecture bursts from the canvas. This is the vision that Jerome Brillat presents in his comic book style narrative figurations. Exploration on the edge of an unbridled imagination…

As André Malraux said; "Painting tends not so much to see the world, but to create another.” This definition applies perfectly to the work of Jérôme Brillat. His universe is destabilising; stunning but suggestive. Humankind is rarely represented, absent almost… When visible, they are tiny, unstable, free falling, and often disappearing behind the scenes. When appearing on the foreground, they are merely silhouettes without face or expression. In a frame that appears to crush them, they move like puppets in a world of exaggerated gigantism.

They are apparently nothing … Grave mistake.

In the artist’s mix of reality to fiction, the human has interfered with the canvas.

The buildings, their facades, their curvatures, and their inclinations speak to, and for, humans.

Through them, expressing above all, the invisible human. The creator; whose need for parody is constantly felt in order to better portray reality. The curves, lines of force, and magnetism of his world share with us his apprehensions surrounding today’s busy life in an ever changing world. As though escaping the comic, the work speaks: phenomenal cars, flying saucers and other gigantic mechanicals. Science-fiction and literalism are often visible. A noisy, pervasive modernity that asserts itself at the expense of the human. Trafic thus offers us an aerial view of a roundabout in the form of a star. Surrounded by gigantic buildings, cars are the size of ants. The earthlings go about their business in a setting that has completely engulfed them. To the point where they are no longer figured, but simply imagined. A double mise en abyme, by perspective and inclusion in the lower case.

Utterly abyssal…

Nature - sea, forest or desert - is very scantily present in the work. And so The Hand of Destiny shows us an unleashed sea on the point of engulfing a frail skiff, ready to close in.

An Awaited Vision

Even if his area is figurative, the daily and the ordinary hold little interest for Jerome Brillat. His work aims to transmit emotion through scenes in perpetual movement, expressing their feelings across the canvas. He explains his taste for modelling: "My job is to make you forget about the flat, smooth surface of the canvas. Perspective allows me to do this by pushing it to its extremes, often to the point of caricature. The view is either aerial or low-angle, sometimes both, so that the eye is never still.” By infinite precision of detail and stunning shots, he creates a dizzying aspect that forces the viewer to work their imagination.

Through this gigantism and ambient maelstrom, a hyper expressive painting affirms a message of warning: Humankind is lost in the hostile world that they create. Behind the playful and caricatural façade of comics, lies a deep melancholy. The virtuosity of 3D allows talking street-signs, poles, buildings, cars, streets and walls. Influenced by Enki Bilal, he stresses the contours in his compositions with infinite precision. He adds extra volume owing to the frequent use of duotone which accentuates the opposition between the surfaces. Jérôme Brillat; award-winning developer of futuristic megacities, challenges the viewer’s emotions, sensations and questions posed by his forthcoming works. Is this not the essence of art?
