This is a work that uniquely stands out in the world of painting from Honfleur (Calvados). Not a portrait, not a landscape, not even an abstract art, this painting represents the printed circuit of a home automation system…

But everything is explained when we examine the J km track, whose real name is Jean-Luc Jarneau. With a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in hand, he flew into the field of technological innovation: first computer, then automation projects as a project manager in a large group, and concepts and patents filed in the field of permanent roller shutter automation. There is no doubt that Jean-Luc Jarneau is a born technologist.

Everything changes three years ago, when an artist friend marvels at his artistic plans and pushes him to paint a painting. He is somewhat retired, opening a new door: and why not start creating, this time my art? It results in the first work, which can be admired in the shop window of sculptor Christine Belvier, whom he immediately trusted.

To draw this electronic card, he had to place each component, define the lanes of each track, as well as their width, and then write about 10,000 lines of machine program. This serigraph, printed in a maximum of 21 copies, is made on linen canvas. To further enhance it, the artist imagined the frame and executed it by an artisan boilermaker. It is made of steel and weighs more than 40 kg. The result is amazing and can not leave you indifferent. Art and technology are a perfect match! He explains, “I’m completely new to the field, and it makes me want to keep going, but this painting is really the result of a lifetime experience…”
