Jacques Verdier

Born in: 1956


Chaos is an order that has not yet been deciphered.

"It all started as small, my child bedroom, I 'was awakened by the buzz of offset printing machines family. I saw reams of paper back, metamorphose covered with large black typography and start multicolored paper compressed into bales. It 's later after my arts studies in Paris and on my return from Tunisia as paper and writing reappeared in my work when I then réinstallais my workshop in the paper warehouse of printing. It is then natural that the posters, blotters, boxes and books of account that were stored there took in my paintings to become the backbone of my work. This interest in materials is related to its flexibility in use and above its ordinary character; where that one goes, he will always be there, present, available, rich in meanings; memory and oblivion of a human adventure where signs mingle and s' forming a tangled network where residual proudest ideas like the humblest are found equal, united in limbo.

It 's only later, when I transferred my workshop to Stables in Lure that the images appeared in my work. J 'had both used my paper stock, cut with my previous environment. The world itself seemed to have changed my will to understand and organize gave way to a sense of chaos. All mixed, we returned a new century that of confusion, saturation. The information came not in a comfortable chronology, but simultaneously. Now in the space of the canvas, the calligraphic signs, broken words, pictures torn posters and magazines coexist giving no solution but leaving everyone a chance to play. "
