Christian Jaccard, (B 1939). Graduated from Bourges Fine Arts School in 1960, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Société des auteurs dans les arts graphiques et plastiques (ADAGP). His work is organized around 2 axes (nodes, and combustion) by focusing his research on traces, fingerprints (whether due to stamping, combustion, folding, calcination or braiding). In both cases, he uses a well-defined method; each of his gestures, of his actions, is carried out rigorously, without dizziness, without carelessness, conceptualised and controlled.
