Charles Hiernimus

Graduated in Fine Arts from the Institut Saint-Luc of Brussels, Charles Hieronimus defines himself as a “photographist“ because of his use of photohraphy as a base for a large part of his graphic designs. Charles Hieronimus is known as detailed artisan that manufactured infographic images, carefully prepared and thought as paintings proceeded by a draft. This mental work allows the artist to send out a message, a personal thought about all the big challenges of our time. ‘Unconscious interventions of a human being into a natural balance, in the purpose of satisfying all his own needs and caprices are the starting point of my works.‘ Another side of his artwork is strictly photographic, namely photographs made in studio without any digital retouching. Everything happened during the shooting. This choice allows him to capture a glimpse nearly imperceptible to the naked eye, so quick than the brain is incapable to notice it. “It is possible to make pictures from ordinary things, small details of daily life. Materials which everybody uses everyday: water, oil, painting, petroleum or dirt, metal, grass… From mixing all these liquid or solid materials, which attract or repel each other, will gush unions or explosions captured by the camera to reveal its forceful lines.“
