Jacques Pugin - Tracehumance
|Publisher||Sturm & Drang|
During his career, artist-photographer Jacques Pugin has experimented with every available technique to achieve his creative purpose. ‘Tracehumance’, published in conjunction with an exhibition of his work at Musée Gruérien, Switzerland, covers no less than four decades and illustrates an artistic approach characterised by an almost obsessive quest for signs and traces created by humans or nature. Pugin has developed a highly coherent body of work in a style that emerges as the changing landscapes unfold. It is notable for the recurrent use of handwritten markings, traces, and signs, as well as his experimentation with photographic techniques, video, and satellite images.
