Jean-Philippe Deugnier

I work on memory, resilience, cognition and emotions.

It is, trough a specific work on the image, to send a stimulus to the viewer, who takes the image for him, appropriates it and in a way, ends the story.

I am inspired by Optical Art, developed in the 1960s, especially the notion of residual-images, but adapted to photography.

I often include in my images, curves or mathematical formulas, speaking about the ambivalence between materialism and emotion.

Passionate about photography, I use all the techniques, both post-production and printing support. I like his simplicity and his direct speech.

I use either my own shots of objects, often quite common, or pictures on plates of glass, free of rights (portraits, family photos, handwritten letters) dating from the nineteenth to twentieth century, that I scan and rework in chromatic contrast, allowing an optical game and forcing an increased observation of the image.

So, I push the viewer to make an emotional and introspective journey.

    Latest Art Work

    01 Jun 2020 – 01 Sep 2020

    Jean-Philippe Deugnier presents 38 large size pieces from the last two years of his work. Practicing the architecture creation photography for many years, in 2018, he makes a 90-degree turn in his approach to creation, his relationship with art and the way he looks the public. His art has become more retinal, more introspective in his relationship with others. To link up the before and the after, you will see 6 pieces of works created in 2016, 2017. More architectural, the series “Vertigo” was the beginning of his work on a mind games between the images and the viewer. He works on memory, resilience, cognition and emotions. He is more an image creator, like a painter, than a photographer. By a specific work on the picture, he is sending a stimulus to the viewer, who takes the image for him, appropriates it and in a way to speak, ends the story. Inspired by Optical Art, developed during the sixties, particularly the notions of afterimages and chromatic contrasts, but adapted to photography, he often included curves or mathematical formulas in his images, up to emphasizing the ambivalence between materiality and emotion, retention, protention and awareness of time. Passionate about photography, he uses either his own shots, or images on glass plates dating from the XIX-XXth century, which he reworks, creating an optical game and obliging to "penetrate" into the image. It is the reason why he produces mostly large size creations. Its print media are chosen specifically for their optical qualities. He offers you to take an emotional and introspective journey.
