About Me

Jacques Camp

I am a watercolor artist ever mindful to "let the picture paint itself."  Vibrant color and geometric shapes fascinate and exhilarate me!  What it is in life I see, and what I wish to convey seems always to come down to the abstracted shapes before me.  I use bold color and line making along with my shapes to bring forth the personality and emotion of each piece therefore revealing my own story.  My initial watercolor work was primarily expressive realism with a twist of whimsy.  In recent years my work has evolved into a more contemporary style of vibrant geometric abstracts.  I have no set formula for how I work.  Usually, I start by drawing a few shapes on paper, gessobord, or canvas and then "let the picture paint itself."  Geometric shapes, vibrant color, line and mark making are elements lending themselves well to the result I wish to convey.  Like piecing together a puzzle, I develop shape, color, and line to ultimately bring me to a point where my eye tells me to stop;  no more is needed.  My goal is to create in the viewer a feeling of delight and connection with my art, along with a sense of curiosity as to how my puzzle of shape, color, and line fit together.  I live in Jackson, Tennessee.  Along with MGAL, I am a member of the Southern Watercolor Society and the Jackson Visual Arts Association, and I am a signature member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society.  Website:  jacquescampfineart.com.
