Don Jacot
American, b. 1949
Follow

Primarily identified as a Photorealist, American artist Don Jacot combines the optics and clarity of photography with his own interpretations of shape, color, and perspective to create paintings that transcend the abilities of the camera. Often compositing different elements of several photographs, Jacot’s paintings are rendered in acrylics, gouache, watercolor, charcoal, and most frequently, oil paint—almost always with a normal brush and rarely embellished by airbrush. Jacot began drawing for recreation in 1982, interpreting the works of masters such as Walker Evans and Charles Sheeler with charcoal on paper. His work today is influenced by Social Realism and his urban surroundings, and he has used storefront window displays as a recurring motif. In these paintings, Jacot fabricates arrangements of objects from different eras or of significant humorous or symbolic value, always with attention to light, color, and form.
