Jacques Weyer (Lyon °1946) originally worked as an immunology researcher but quit the branch when he was around 30y old. In his earlier years, Weyer made lyrical abstract paintings, in which he focused on simplicity, yet with a color palette as various as it is subtle. In 1994, several expositions gave him new insights about geometrical abstraction. It permits a certain clarity to manifest in the use of forms. After a period in which he only used vertical and horizontal lines, he introduced oblique lines, which in turn created a dynamic force. His works have recently been exhibited in Paris, Sydney, Housten, ... - collection in Modriaanhuis, ...
"No form is ever exhausted. Everything is still usable today. The spirit in which we use forms and colours determines their significance."
