Jean D Volcy
Jean Dominique Volcy is a natural born, talented artist. His passion for art started at a very young age with his elaborate drawings and water color paintings. They are a testimony of the future artist that we behold today. With patience, perseverance and discipline Volcy has nurtured his art, which led him to a range of discoveries and creativities. Later he visited the Bob Blackburn Print Making workshop, there he acquired additional knowledge for his artistic career. Volcy’s primary medium is oil and acrylic. For the past thirty years Volcy has participated in many exhibitions in the metropolitan area and abroad in venues such as the Restoration center for Art & Culture, The Brooklyn Museum, The Bronx Museum and La Maison des Arts (Montreal). His works are included in many books and catalogues: including Beyond the Border Art by Recent immigrant ( Bronx Museum), Authentic voices of African American, The Naives and the Moderns, Haitian Paintings Art and Kitsch, Revolution, Colorful Dreams of Haiti, Masterpieces of Haitian Art. He was commissioned in 2000 to create a painting for the census. Volcy’s paintings capture the essence and depth of many aspects that we experience in our life, personifying beauty through his well defined sense of color, form and balance.“ My work echoes the murmur, the clamor and joy in our daily life,” he says.” Sometimes my voice is silent and melancholic; sometimes it is clear, exciting and full of joy.” Nonetheless his paintings always leave a lasting impression on the viewer. Volcy lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
