• 2002 Médaille d'or et Découverte de l'année. Salon d'automne international des Beaux-Arts de Montréal (SAIBAM). "Doué d'un talent exceptionnel, c'est avec l'enthousiasme et l'énergie vibrante de sa nature enflammée et passionnée qu'il se dévoue entièrement à son art." Lise Grondines (fondatrice du SAIBAM)
"Since being named" Discovery of the Year "at the 2002 Montreal International Fine Arts Fair, Jacques Philippe Hébert has never ceased to amaze us. Gifted with exceptional talent, it is with the enthusiasm and vibrant energy of his nature inflamed and passionate that he devotes himself entirely to his art. Its prodigious productivity is proof of this. Yet nothing is easy in the art of Jacques Philippe Hébert: vibrant canvases whose details and meticulously executed patterns intertwine, link, overlap and form a tumultuous cascade of vibrant colors that fascinate and seduce the viewer.
His new series of paintings titled 'Mysterious Characters' is striking, powerful, enigmatic and complex. Some of these works will send chills down your spine, but they are nonetheless magnificent. Who are these characters? Where do they come from? What terrible secrets are hidden behind their inquisitive gaze? In front of such works, the spectator, paralyzed and bewitched, has the impression of exceeding the limits of time and space and of being transported to the other side of the mirror, in a dangerous and forbidden zone. The canvas takes possession of the intimate thoughts of the beholder and it is the victory of Art over Man. What a mysterious and disconcerting experience! It is therefore with a certain relief that we discover some other canvases in this collection where the faces of the characters are represented to us in a more fun and amiable light. Nonetheless, his works whose theme is nature are just as surprising and splendid. There are multitudes of fish, flowers, butterflies; languid beaches that merge into a sunset with iridescent colors. It is a tribute to the exhilarating renewal of nature. What formidable force, what boundless imagination animates the genius of Jacques Philippe Hébert! A deeply sincere and generous man, he shares all of this with us ... Her dreams, her most intimate secrets and emotions, her ardent joie de vivre, her extraordinary energy and above all, her vibrant passion and total love of Art and Life. For sure, he is this new star who has just conquered his place in the firmament of the world of the arts! I sincerely thank Jacques Philippe Hébert for taking part in this Salon d'Automne International des Beaux-Arts in Montreal. It is with great pride and immense pleasure that I invite you to discover this artist by browsing the following pages which can only enchant you. (Lise Grondines, founder of SAIBAM)
