Open Space #7 Jean Claracq

Since childhood, Jean Claracq has been fascinated with the history of art, drawing inspiration from mediaeval illumination to photography via Renaissance painting.
Favouring miniature formats, his paintings are based on digital collages derived from various sources. Despite their small sizes, his compositions teem with detail and offer multiple stories that bring together different temporalities and places.
Using highly contemporary iconography, Claracq works in a particular tradition of the genre scene. He depicts young male figures absorbed in virtual worlds, isolated in interior and exterior environments, offering different perspectives on the suburbs and their buildings as well as urban and natural landscapes.
For his first solo exhibition, Claracq has created Propaganda, five new works set into an architectural model system that invites the viewer to move around the paintings.
