visual arts / Visual arts, Architecture & Design / VANCOUVER - Jérôme Baco: invisible @ le centre culturel

Le Centre culturel francophone de Vancouver is pleased to host the exhibition "Invisible" by painter Jérôme Baco (Jérôme Bacconnier). This work, intrinsically connected to the eponymous literary publication, offers viewers a personal reflection through a series of portraits in Indian ink on wood depicting revolutionaries, dissidents, militants and activists. The leitmotif of the works is the human being, imperfect, natural, raw and without artifice, portrayed with a sincere love of what we are and what we reveal.


Jérôme Baco has lived in Canada now for a number of years but was born and raised in a Paris suburb. Very early, he developed an exceptional interest in observing what makes up the social fabric around him. His works, created using the pointillisme technique, give the public an insight into his view of society that combines his passion for social issues, languages, politics and the environment. Jérôme Baco defines his work as a visceral production, emphasizing originality and personality, which sets him in stark contrast to a certain homogenised view of the art world that has come about through globalisation.

Opening on Thursday January 19, 2017
