About Jacques de


Jacques de Beaufort received his MFA from California Institute of the Arts in 2000, and his BFA with honors from University of Virginia in 1997.

Beaufort loosely likens art to psychopomps, mediating between the everyday and the archetypal. He envisions his work guiding from the foreign to the familiar and the universal and to the particular, without judgement, in the tradition of Shamanistic and Alchemical art.

‘One may look into the painting, but the painting looks back—a strange mirror of hidden desire and the churning eros that lurks behind the veil,’ he says. ‘Painting can be a type of magic if we give it enough space and a little silence.’

Beaufort’s work has been exhibited across the United States, and he is currently an associate professor of visual art at Palm Beach Art Institute in Florida.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

Dali would be impressed :)

I think it's beautiful... I could admire his work for hours!!! Love it!

i think this work is beautiful very experssive and imaginative

Honestly, really creepy.

Look at his website, really disturbingly beautiful work

A painter's response to Dante?

cunning and desisive .... daring symbolic images screaming for confrontation...

love it, perhaps a Cajun down in the boyous, stayed there one night myself with friends and enjoyed the atmosphere

he used to be my art instructor when I went to college in S. Cali. This piece reminded me of him when it poped up on google and I read the article about the artist, yes it's him. His works are very unique.
