JEAN VINCENT SIMONET - MAKING INTRODUCTIONS
As a continuation of the successful 1st, 2nd and 3rd series of ‘Making Introductions’, we were commissioned by Messums to create a 4th series, this time focusing on the practice of photographers. Known as a platform for creative expression across artistic genres, this three-part series explores the language of making through the artists’ lenses. By exploring their practices, as well as the techniques that stand at the core of their respective studio processes, viewers can gain an insight into the intent of each artist.
As part of Messums’ fourth ‘Making Introductions’ series, we spent a day with Jean-Vincent Simonet at his family’s printing factory in Lyon, exploring his practice. With a background in traditional photography, Jean Vincent now creates works which are distinctly painterly. His practice pushes the poetics of chaos to the very limits of the photographic medium and culminates in artworks which are nothing short of enchanting.
