Véronique Joumard has been showing her work since the end of the 80’s in several art centers, museums, in France and abroad. Her pieces are in great private and public collections. Currently, she is working on a major public commission for Bayeux Cathedral in Normandy. Glass windows that need technical, optical and innovative experimentations.
With a practice based on a renewed approach of material, the artist re-thinks alternatively painting, photography and sculpturein their relationship to images as reappearing processed images. She always pays attention to the exhibition’s space and then to the spectator’s space.
Véronique Joumard attaches great importance to materials with their quality, physical, visual and formal specificities. Her production oscillates between high-tech and “bricolage” and sometimes danger (as in her early electric pieces)by bringing light to an ecology of matter.
