Jacques Quillery


Personal information
Jacques Quillery is a french-costarican artist influenced by nature and established in this country since 1968. His constant field trips throughout the most conserved areas of Costa Rica allow him to explore the best kept secrets of our flora, fauna and the scenic beauty of our mountains, volcanoes and oceans.
A hedonist sensation invades his work. He takes only what he needs from nature in order to give the spectator the possibility of recognizing, meeting or reencountering them self within nature.
His work do not contains disturbing ideas. On the contrary, his paintings take us away from our world of concrete and steel, our arid and urban world. His objective is to come back to the same idea and provide different versions. It is like a necessary reflex, to record things never seen previously.
His works are not servile copies of nature, but an interpretation of the subjects that harmonizes with the spirit of the paintings.
