Below are Patrick’s Artist Biography, his Artist Statement, along with 25 of his hyper realistic paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Patrick’s information and to take a look at his artwork.

Artist Biography

Self-taught painter, Patrick Egger was born in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland in 1957.

First a forest engineer and then a teacher, it was only at the dawn of his sixties, settled in La Creusaz above Les Marécottes that painting imposed itself on him.

After experimenting with charcoal and then pastel, he finally turned to acrylic paint, which lends itself well to his very intuitive practice of working.

He paints landscapes in a figurative way, up to hyperrealism. Through his works, we perceive a persistent quest for sensations linked to the beauty of the place. Through opposing atmospheres, he likes to bring together, for example, the peacefulness of the mountain and the harshness of the alpine setting.

Patrick’s art seems both faithful to the visible and in harmony with a feeling that he seeks to magnify. His style often focuses on indirect light which gives the pattern to a particular climate. 

Artist Statement

I paint in a figurative way, often touching hyperrealism, which allows me to accurately, in a detailed way, to replicate a subject.

When I paint a landscape, from a photo, I am intent on creating a strict reproduction, but occasionally changing a detail. For example, I will make a change in the vegetation or the light on the subject with its linked shadows to the atmospheric conditions, with a view to a search, a balance, a breath or an emotion.

What is imagined must remain realistic as far as I am concerned.

However, some works are totally invented. They then represent compositions of different images, more or less precise memories or simply ephemeral impressions. The difficulty no longer lies in the exact reproduction of a photo but that of a virtual image, even a feeling, without knowing the exact result. The method is empirical - the successive layers follow one another and the result is thus refined little by little. The path to the final creation is not always the most direct.

Below are Paul’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Paul Kenens was born in Brussels (1947), the eldest of six children, without a father. As a 14-year-old and the breadwinner of the family, he found work in a printing house. Updated to a color mixer and offset printer for luxury printing, at the time a specialized craft, he discovered his sense of composition and color. Thirteen years later he left the printing house for a year, but never returned. He no longer wanted to depend on third parties and her started acting. In the same period, he discovered the ceramic craft.

Paul Kenens is passionate about this two disciplines, resulting in two parallel careers. As an independent actor in film, TV and theater, he worked in international theater. As a ceramist, he specialized in color glazes, designed decorations and tile panels, copied old Art Nouveaux panels, made ceramic architectural ceramics for protected monuments and performed artistic ceramics commissions for other artists and architects.

In 2010 he decided to paint and enrolled in the academy. Unaware of the gift or experience gained in painting with ceramic glazes, whose final color is not immediately visible, oil painting is one Revelation: "I can see right now that I do," he says.

He sold the ceramic workshop, stopped acting and devoted himself entirely to the painting. In the academy he was soon given the name of an outsider the passion and use of a detailed painting style.  He commutes daily between academy and his own studio. In between he follows a Masterclass at the Brazilian hyperrealist Omar Ortiz

Artist Statement

My work starts with photos of a fixed fashion model and I take a few hundred photos per photo session. Different photos are edited and adapted until a certain image can no longer be recognized. The chaos in the head must be given a direction, the reminiscences that are attached to it at that moment and the intimate feelings that it arouses channeled. Multiple versions are made in an atmosphere of excitement. During the preparation, uncertainty about the future painted version flashes in all directions. One must first fall a little in love with the subject in order to paint.

I paint the first layer as detailed as possible, as if I want to finish the painting in one layer. Then I paint over the entire canvas in the same way. Shapes and colors are adjusted. I like saturated canvases without painting pasty. They bring depth to the color.

Although the starting point is photographic material, it is always a challenge to distinguish between photorealism and a painted image. Each painting is an attempt to increase the distance between the two. The whole of my work is not sterile but emotional, it shows what moves me. I view the painted canvas more critically, each time from a different state of mind or point of view, with correction as a result.

My titles sometimes raise questions, make the viewer think, it gives the viewer the opportunity to fill in their own interpretation. In the end it comes down to the fact that I partly reveal the inner through the choice made.
