JADE LACOSTE

envision emotion

Jade Lacoste is a franco-vietnamese artist born in Toulouse. She grew up in the Basque country and studied illustration and printed image in Paris for five years, before moving to an art residency in Berlin. She is currently based in South Mexico. Her multi-disciplinary practice explores the various techniques of drawing, painting, etching, digital medias, writing, photography, film-making, sculpture, scenography, and recently silversmithing.

Creating is a necessity which has been driving me all my life, and art an empowering and therapeutic path that taught me not to fear dancing on the edge. Limitations are to be transcended and rules are to be broken to allow innovation. What started off as a mean to escape the outside world became an entry point to inner worlds, and the themes I explore are a reflection of this process. Between poetry and analysis, my work is a search for the state of transe – a questionning of consciousness, spirituality, and the nature of reality – a study of emergent structures – finally, it is an attempt to encompass the intensity of human experience, from bliss to violence, from tears to ecstasy, from sun to dust. The purpose is to generate emotion, a sense of vibrant recognition, this peculiar feeling of wonder…

ART IS A PROCESS OF INCARNATION. THE MAKING OF THE DIVINE WORD INTO THE FLESH ; THE EXPRESSION—IN A MATERIAL FORM—OF VISION.” Alan Watts
