Siegfried Jegard draws the same way he breathes. His drawings run through the pages as a deaf contamination.
the way long of an automatic drawing style, characters, hybrid
creatures, naive monsters and other images of ourselves combine
themselves to their environment and participate to the dream like
putting on scene, the fantasy of the instant.
Each shape seems to generate another, infinitely. Lines get tangled, sketching a mythological
and intimate world, at the edge of child’s imagination and the disenchantment of teen age. Guided by his intuition and his sensibility, the line scatters
his organic constructions and creatures in a candid progression.
In his last solo show, « Far away
eyes », the artist stands back with his practice of automatic drawing.
Operating a selection in protean universe, he distils a clearer framework
where his imagination easily gets something to focus on. He takes control on a viral and free drawing in order to lead it to more frontal and asserted visions.
