Artist Jacques Fl"egrave;chemuller (1945 Monaco) lives and works in
New York.
In his works he combines an ironic sense of humor and a realistic
style. His artistic career began at the Paris Academy of Fine Arts,
then, detached from the routine of daily life he joined a traveling
circus. During his travels he did not neglect his artistic career and
soon exhibited in Paris (Galerie Jeanne Bucher), and the other coast of
the ocean in New york. The city captured his spirits, not only East
Coast, but West Coast galleries also discovered his talents
(Annina Nosei Gallery). His works have since then been part of as
renowned permanent collections as that of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art,
the Harvard Law School Museum, or Paris’ Musée d’Art Moderne.
His works exhibited at Várfok Gallery feature idols of his childhood,
attractive women winking at him from lorry diaries, gas stations and
cans, who offered him as much pleasure as the female figures of Rubens,
Boucher or Fragonard. The paintings shown at Várfok Gallery pay
hommage to these ladies, another set of works are selected
from Fl"egrave;chemuller’s series Monkey Business.
This series as the title suggests, guides the viewers to „playful waters”
opening a world that gives insight to the ludicrous, awkard, grotesque
profile of our society, our weaknesses, sometimes crossing the threshold
of the clichés of political correctness.
