Jacques Henri Sansoulh

Born in 1943 - France


It is only when Jacques Henri Sansoulh died, in 2013, that his relatives discovered the scope of an obsessive artwork, produced in private during more than 20 years.

Painting has always been important in his life,b ut it was only in the early 90s that he took the leap : painting soon became his main activity, but he did not try to show his works. During the last twenty years of his life, he devoted himself almost exclusively to this creative passion, in an obsessional and accumulative fever.

He leaves behind more than 1,500 works on paper; those captivating accumulations of colored spots and repetitive movements can be considered a creative outlet, if not an actual writing, which became vital as he isolated himself in his daily life.

Sansoulh wrote on each paper the precise date of its completion, making the secret adventure even more dizzying. He leaves an overwhelming, hypnotic artwork, deeply affecting all of us.
