Throughout his artistic journey, Pugin experiments, using every available technique to achieve his purpose. He even goes so far as to jettison his working tool, the camera itself, to ascend, literally and figuratively, into a numeric dimension. Tracehumance traverses four decades of work by Jacques Pugin, in five chapters that illustrate his artistic approach, characterized by an almost obsessive quest for signs and traces created by man or nature. Over a period of forty years, Jacques Pugin has developed a highly coherent body of photographic work, seeking original aesthetic principles and his own artistic language, in a style that emerges as the changing landcapes unfold. His style appears in the recurrent use of hand-written markings, traces and signs, his experimentation with photographic techniques, use of video and satellite images. Jacques Pugin’s work is characterized by aesthetic and visual ambition, associated with a keen quest for meaning, the driving principle behind a work of art in the making. Intelligence, originality, beauty and perfection are the hallmarks of Jacques Pugin’s work, constructed with remarkable artistic sensibility and closely linked to contemporary culture. This book is published in conjunction with the Jacques Pugin exhibition in Gruyere.
