jean-paul meiser

My project as a painter-plastic artist was built on several ideas: showing the viewer what he is not looking at, demystifying the image. At first I revealed the Reflections of Water with my painting. This experience marked the whole development of my research ... Finally, I want my creations to show off ... by disregarding contingencies.

Painter, sculptor and engraver, Jean-Paul Meiser relentlessly deploys an unusual work since his beginnings encouraged by Pierre Buraglio. Its production continues to surprise and captivate over the years. Out of time, out of academism, out of fashion, this creation endures in an almost Borgesian labyrinthine obstinacy, in reflections and shock waves. This creation, inhabited by constancy and dazzling, strikes with its fragmented approach to pictorial rhythms and an acute instinct for formal combinations. The artist pays extreme attention to the plural supports that give his works that "immediate life" dear to Paul Eluard. And an air of eternity too, through the spiritual dimension of the compositions that reveal fragments of the unconscious. This does not prevent the current anchoring as in the recent and tragic "Sort of the Sheep". The artist likes to say "paint to detach, hang to depend on". His enigmatic aphorisms contain a subtle energy that makes this high-yield work “fuel”. Everything is captured in a creative, recreational and festive maelstrom with a host of possible scenarios. It is in any case witty, in a resolutely visionary and stimulating rendering. With finesse, depth, humor, the artist creates between balance and vertigo. A tireless explorer, Jean-Paul Meiser thus builds a singularly polyphonic work. Really and vibrantly strange.

Jean-Paul MEISER, painter and engraver
“Born on the borders of Lorraine among peasant miners, Jean-Paul Meiser studied public law and participated in the training of film club leaders in Lyon.
Having become a cultural education teacher in an agricultural high school, he settled in the Drôme. From 1981 he attended the Regional School of Fine Arts in Valence, followed courses with Pierre Buraglio who had him exhibited with him in 1986 in Poët-Laval. From then on, his exhibitions will follow one another regularly in Rhône-Alpes, France and even abroad.
In 1992 he created a contemporary art gallery at the Lycée du Valentin in Bourg-lès-Valence, where he invited many young visual artists, whom he had to work with his pupils or students. He practices printmaking, photography, and makes artist's books sometimes in collaboration with the School of Fine Arts. Since childhood Jean-Paul Meiser has been fascinated by water. Wasn't his father a mechanic in the French Navy for several years? In the 1980s, he regularly returned on vacation with his family to the island of Yeu, photographed fishing boats destined to disappear, then attracted by the reflections and captured the images below the waterline. From this gaze on the movements of water and light, Jean-Paul Meiser gave birth to a new way of painting.
The paintings will integrate materials, objects, writings gleaned from everyday life through the transparencies of paper, canvas, glass, grids and packaging, attempt to awaken the gaze, desacralize the image / reflection that has become an image / fetish in our society. "
