“Sweep Forward” displays Picard’s latest work, since his last highly acclaimed solo exhibit at the Hoboken Historical Museum thirteen months ago. Picard defines his “sweep” as a photograph that records time and movement. By using the panning view on his camera, Picard creates a sweeping effect that is like a painter’s brush moving across a canvas. With his camera he brushes beyond the view finder’s boundaries. The results are captured memories. Some parts of the image are clear and sharp while others break up, fade, or disappear. This enables the shapes in his works to come directly from the camera free from the constraints of the view finder.

Centuries old aesthetic rules that imprison the photographic image in the camera’s rectangle are completely broken in Picard’s work. His images take on a gorgeous patina of photographic pigment prints that float free like dream images. These beautiful effects are achieved because of his innovative techniques.

An artist reception will be held on Saturday, April 21,
6 – 8 pm. On Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 3 pm, Picard will talk about his artwork and welcome questions from visitors. Gallery hours are Thursday and Friday 4 to 7 pm, Saturdays 1 to 5 pm and by appointment by contacting Jean-Paul Picard at 201-264-1037.
