Sainte-Luce Jérôme Biography
Born in 1981 in Perpignan, Sainte-Luce Jérôme studied Applied Arts at Rivers Des Pères, then Plastic Arts from 1999 to 2001 in Spain and then in the Ardèche. A teacher of Applied Arts since 2009, he practices in various training centres on the island of Guadeloupe.
Since 2009, notably with the exhibition “The Engraved Souls”, St. Lucia Jerome has been developing a visual research work, covering the Amerindian culture, a unifying element of the history and heritage of the Caribbean space. Indeed, “haunted” by the loss of memory, the artist tirelessly bypasses the Native American petroglyphs and asks the question of “the other state” after the death of man, and thus the question of the trace left… What remains in spite of everything, after the extinction of an entire civilization.
His artistic approach is also centered around different used salvage fabrics, torn painted supports, cut and stitched. It is from these petroglyphs, these engraved rocks, that the artist grafts his imaginary world. An imaginary world where souls are wandering ghosts looking for an elsewhere, an elsewhere carried by “The Smugglers of Souls” and the series ‘LESPWINEG’ focused mainly on drawings. Through his paintings and drawings, the artist talks about his cultural heritage and his inner world.
