Artist Profile: Jean-Paul Cattin
“Way of St-James” Jean-Paul Cattin Abstract photography
By photographing the marks of mankind Jean-Paul Cattin takes these out of context and creates a new reality. His pictures are therefore timeless.
With his artwork Jean-Paul goes from concrete to abstract and transforms our perception of reality. He transmits his energy and creativity, which built up during his pilgrimage to his spectators through his pictures. Consequently this creates a perpetual magnetism towards his art opening our minds and our hearts. More than a documentary about history, his pictures put the spectator into a whole new state of mind about spirituality.
Born in Geneva, Switzerland in 1964. He is based in Geneva and also works in New York. He is represented by Masters & Pelavin Gallery, New York, and Arteria Gallery, Montreal.
