Jacques MURON

Born in 1950, Jacques Muron began his artistic career studying drawing and printmaking at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Toulouse, graduating in 1973. He received two prestigious awards for further study; first, he was awarded the Paul-Louis Weiller Prize by the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1982. Then from 1983 through 1985, he was a Fellow in Residence at the Villa Médicis, having won the award formerly known as the Prix de Rome.
Finding the sublime within a mundane object, and with mathematical precision for rendering the tiniest details with the traditional tools of the centuries-old printmaking medium, the work of Jacques Muron comes across as a meditation on what defines an ordinary object and the nature of perceived value. His labor-intensive prints bring every detail of the subjects he renders into laser-sharp focus, suggesting that each minute thread is equally essential to the perceived whole. His detailed renderings often sit within pristine white vacuums of space, as objects found in a post-modern void. His work, shown most extensively in Europe, is found in several prominent public and private collections in both the United States and Europe.
