My starting point is water: droplets, ice, snow, glass material inspire me for these representations with a feeling of fragility. Hardness/fragility, transparency/translucency, chance/control, smooth texture/rough texture, cutting/roundness, among all these paradoxical qualities, I chose to make them dialogue: transparency, wall, architecture.
Particularly interested in light, shadow, reflection, refraction, recursion and caustic effects, Janine Jacquot-Perrin regularly travels for study trips to Africa, Asia, the United States and Lebanon.
