About Artist Jeff Jacques
I draw questions, and we each come to our conclusions, so who is right? If I see what I see and you see what you see, how can we say one of us is right and the other is wrong? What happens if we share what we see with someone who holds a dissimilar view? In art we are intrigued by those different views, so why in life do we make alliances and enemies of those with dissimilar views? What happens if we don’t see the other’s view, in art we agree to disagree, so perhaps we can do this in life as well. In the art of life, we can share our dissimilar views and still be friends, stay open and creative, we can seek to understand each other better by understanding what we might not see or agree with. This may sound abstract, but life is abstract, and art mimics life. I am an abstract artist, it has somehow become the natural progression of my artistic journey, it’s part of who I am and what I do.
