In Jean Simard’s art, whimsy, reflection and wonder are intertwined to create powerful images. Painting, he believes, is a mysterious process that is like exploring through a microscope, discovering the unexpected, opening new options. The work supports a strong sense of marvel for the wonders of the world we live in, for the possibilities that one encounters when discovering that “things are often not what they seem”.
Born in Belgium in 1946, Jean Simard has always been interested in art. Simard enrolled at the Saydie Bronfman Art Center in Montreal in the mid ’80’s and since then has actively pursued this passion. In 1996, he moved to Princeton, NJ, where he currently resides. Simard then studied at Artworks in Trenton, and The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, focusing on lithography.
