Photographer Showcasing – Jacques Godard’s work in ‘Taking in the View’ Exhibition

Jacques Godard is a prolific photographer whose works include a variety of subjects, including natural still lives, nudes and studies of bull fighting. He has exhibited at many galleries and institutions globally.

VEDO Corporate Art Service is proud to be showing a stunning work entitled ‘Genesis’ in the forthcoming landscape exhibition ‘Taking in the View’ that runs at the gallery from 10th March until 8th April 2017.

Quite often, Godard creates pieces in large format which helps make these photographic works very engaging. Some of our favourite of Godard’s works are part of the enigmatic series entitled Genesis.

In this series, Godard uses a specific photographic process known as pixoplasty to generate the very recognisable look this body of works possesses. These pieces are highly creative with a real painterly quality, muted palette and natural subject matter.

Describing the process, Godard asserts that “The original photographic image serves as a matrix for a study of its evocations. The scanned image is unstructured: its original constituents, pixels, provide me a material as malleable as clay.”

In his Genesis series, Godard captures images of the natural world from La Plaine des Maures, in Var-France, from which he generates both coloured and black and white prints. Both sets focus on the themes of the creation of nature and apocalypse. These themes are really emphasised by Godard’s painterly effect.

For Godard, the coloured works are more akin to creation of new worlds and the black and white more relevant to the theme of apocalypse. Equally, both groups within this series are quite serene and show a world that seems to be separate from any human intervention or interference.

Godard works in other methods and has both historically and more recently experimented with the process of gum bichromate. The effects are quite different from the delicacy he achieves using the pixoplasty method, but they are equally as engaging.

He reports, “During 1982, through the works of Edward Steichen, I discovered the existence of the printing process with “gum bichromate”. I felt that it can give me the opportunity to obtain the images I was looking for.”

Godard employed this technique to capture images of the natural world, exotic plant life and sand dunes. His works depicting the dunes are totally captivating and show an almost alien environment. The layers of sand and details of small plants show an environment that is at once recognisable but also quite distinct. The subject matter and close frame compositions work very well with the image’s use of black and white.

Godard’s works are highly collectible and are found in museum collections. His works have featured in several noted exhibitions across France and most recently in Nice.

Godard was recently invited to participate in a prestigious exhibition celebrating the 70 years of the Mediterranean Union for Modern Art, founded in 1946 under the presidency of Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard, in a large group exhibition in Menton (France) at the Palais de L’europe.

He is currently showing work in “Vision Future”, an exhibition organized by UMAM (Mediterranean Union for Modern Art) and city of Menton. Held in the centre of Nice in a large renowned specialised ophthalmological complex, Godard is showing works with 3 other artists, who have been selected through a competition organised by the City of Menton. It is running until 31 March 2017 in Nice.

Godard’s photographs are very unique in style, are elegant and evocative. Often focusing on the land or natural subjects, they would fit in a variety of settings, from luxury properties to Corporate office spaces.

If you would like to see artworks by this artist, please contact VEDO or attend Gallery Different, 14 Percy Street where pieces from both the Genesis series and others using the gum bichromate technique can be viewed.

Photographer Showcasing: Christopher Hauser’s work in ‘Taking in the View’ Exhibition

(c) ‘Life Lines’ by Artist Christopher Hauser

Christopher Hauser is a Munich based photographer whose international profile and reputation and body of photographic work has developed at an excitingly fast pace.

Christopher Hauser defines himself as a ‘contemporary and architecture photographer’. He is perhaps best known for his large sweeping panoramic cityscapes taken from vertiginous heights and his elegant abstract shots of some of the World’s most famous skyscrapers.

There is something intrinsically contemporary about his elegant, cool streamlined cityscapes. It’s this quality which has meant a number of prominent European businesses have selected Christopher as the artistic ambassador to their firms, displaying his captivating works in their boardrooms, hallways and communal areas.

Since his impressive Skylines exhibition at London’s Lloyds Register in 2014, a star exhibition attraction during the London Festival of Architecture, Christopher’s work has gained many new collectors in Germany, London and internationally.

Christopher’s gallery exhibition profile in London has progressed steadily as he has been invited to show works in Gallery DIFFERENT’s group exhibitions over the last two years and his works headlined the launch exhibition for VEDO’s Corporate Art Service in 2015, which caught the eye of a very large international law firm who sought 15 photographic works for an installation in their newly refurbished offices in London.

Christopher has spent the last year travelling the world and spending a great deal of time in America developing a new body of work, in particular taking some new images of Shanghai and New York which we are all waiting with excitement to see. He has also won an impressive photographic award for his work. He won first place in the category of Professional Architecture, Interiors for the International Photography Awards 2016 for his Ice Hotel work see here.  

His stunning black and white abstract City shots of Singapore were shown in the exhibition Savoir Faire in October 2016. At VEDO we have a soft spot for Hauser’s abstract architectural pieces, he takes distinctive aspects or sections of modern buildings and hones in on them, really scrutinising their surfaces and form, to the extent that the surface pattern takes on an entirely new abstract form. For example see his abstract shots of Sydney’s Opera House or of the Eiffel Tower.

We are thrilled to showcase a completely different side to Christopher’s work at the forthcoming landscape exhibition ‘Taking in the View’ at Gallery DIFFERENT from 10th March 2017 until 8th March 2017.

Christopher is showing three powerful images from his Antarctica series.

Christopher captures similarly the scale and magnificence of the landscape. His highly detailed large-format images of Antarctica’s mountains compel you to step into the photograph and feel the same emotions as the man behind the lens, feelings of total awe or feeling humbled by the majesty of the landscape.

The icy blues and greys that have become characteristic of his oeuvre are still present in these recent works. Ice sheets, snow-capped mountains and isolated fluffy clouds amid bright blue skies are taken as his subject-matter. The works are timeless but also intensely modern and possess a universality which would appeal to a huge range of buyers, collectors and supporters.

Christopher is a joy to work with as an artist and we really cannot wait to see what he produces next as this rising star’s work continues to take an exciting trajectory. If you are interested in any of Christopher Hauser’s pieces or wish to get in contact with the artist, please contact VEDO directly and we will gladly assist. To see Hauser’s pieces in our forthcoming exhibition please join us at Gallery DIFFERENT for what promises to be another highly acclaimed show.

At VEDO Corporate Art Service, we work with many talented emerging artists, photographers and sculptors and each year we showcase different artists that we work with in 3 or 4 exhibitions. We provide an art buying service and bespoke commissioning service for the Corporate art sector and for the property and design sectors. For more details about our services click here.
