Jérôme Zonder's drawings in large format.
These remarkable graphite and charcoal drawings design a neurotic world mingling childhood and ultra-violence, intimacy and History, traumatic experiences and moments of candor... Chiaroscuro strengthens the rawness of the scenes as well as sifting them, helping to outline a work of delicate darkness.
Jérôme Zonder (born 1974) develops a virtuoso work centered on drawing
. His works, often in very large formats, are mainly done in graphite and charcoal and arouse both admiration and fear. In his work, references to Albrecht Dürer, Robert Crumb, Rembrandt, Charles Burns, Otto Dix
and Walt Disney converge to compose narratives, often cruel.
