JACQUES DE BEAUFORT

Posted on 16 October 2013 by Lisa Rockford

Jacques de Beaufort is an artist and filmmaker living in Lake Worth, Florida where he is an Associate Professor of Visual Art at Palm Beach State College. Over the last decade, since receiving his MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, de Beaufort has worked steadily towards the construction of a unique and visionary surrealist cosmology expressed through his paintings created while working “in the contemporary space, but to always be reaching for a realm that exists outside of now but simultaneous with both the past and present”. De Beaufort has exhibited extensively in South Florida, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London and has received substantial critical support for his work including his first feature length film Sanctum and Sacrum, music videos and the founding of his project space UNIT1 Exhibitions in Lake Worth, FL.

Broward College’s North Campus expands upon its inaugural 2012 / 2013 Artist Talk series with a new line-up of some of South Florida’s most groundbreaking, local and internationally acclaimed artists visual artists. Each of the up and coming and internationally renowned artists involved will present the diverse concepts and aesthetics within their respective bodies of work and direct a hands-on workshop the following night to further allow the public to experience and learn from their artistic processes.

The exhibit opening Saturday October 19, 2013 at 1310 Gallery Sailboat Bend Artist Lofts reflects on the work of daughter and mother. The exhibit, “Tracing the Imaginary” focuses on the artwork of daughter and mother. Both women share a similar trajectory starting their carrier as a raw artist. Sonia Baez-Hernandez after a decade of working in art and sociology got a MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Francisca Hernandez began doing ceramic after retired. In 1998 Hernandez began to develop her drawings and mastering skill.

Hernandez’s drawings transport the audience to imaginary gardens, symbolism, and fragmentation of multiple spaces. In contrast, Baez-Hernandez experiments with a realm of micros organic or anthropomorphic forms that emerge as part of a dialogue between surrealistic overtones, and gestural marking. The exhibition includes two-dimensional pieces, installation art, found –object assemblages, and a performance by Baez-Hernandez. Some of their artworks transform the pitch of illness into artistic expressions and emanate therapeutic value.
