Jansem - Drawings

In his practice of drawing, Jansem performs graphic and sensitive gymnastics, an experience that allows him to tame the visible world, a practice (of every day) close to happiness, and perhaps sensual delight. He immortilises the faces, the attitudes such as they are in their famished simplicity, their piercing exuberance of hope, or even their violence, their melancolie in which they are the most true and permanent.   −  Lydia Harambourg, foreword, exhibition catalogue « Mythologies 2000″.
