Jean-Paul Espaignet studies the aesthetic of repetition in art. His work is built around the idea of series and assemblage. Repetition in art creates an illusion of a multitude or preponderance, intensifying the expressive strength of the artist?s intention.

After thirty years in the world of photography, Jean Paul Espaignet is testing a new artistic method based on analysis. He collects images and exploits this â€˜raw materialâ€™ by eliminating anything superfluous. He aims to extract the very essence of what forms a shot. This approach forms refined creations where the emphasis of a subject or action takes priority.
