About

“Jean-Daniel Rohrer’s paintings are like memory maps. They are never caught up in a specific moment in time. Instead Rohrer plays on the ambiguity of memory, and of history, or our collective memory.” Jean-Daniel Rohrer was born in 1960 in Tramelan, Switzerland. He has lived and worked in Montreal since 1989, before which he graduated from the Centre Suisse de L’Information et de la Communication in Switzerland. As author and art critic, John K. Grande, articulately stated, “Jean-Daniel Rohrer’s paintings are like memory maps. They are never caught up in a specific moment in time. Instead Rohrer plays on the ambiguity of memory, and of history, or our collective memory.” Rohrer begins each work at the center of his canvas, moving outwards to create an intricate surface that exudes all kinds of potential meanings. The photos, text images and markings—including letters, stenciled forms, directional symbols—allude to the unconscious, which as Rohrer indicates, is the space in which human memory becomes disconnected from each persona. In referencing this phenomenon, Rohrer comments on the impersonal nature of gathering visual and verbal data in modern society. The result is a rare, but eloquent interpretation of seemingly mundane historical features merging products of popular culture’s temporality into high art’s eternality. Rohrer’s works can be found in many collections around the world, including his painting Ville de Paix on display in the Montreal’s City Hall. In 2010 Rohrer’s sculpture L’Homme de la Paix was donated to de city of Hiroshima in Japan. It is now permanently displayed in Hiroshima’s Palace of Congress. Rohrer produced a mural “Mundus Novus” installed at the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal. In 2017, Rohrer was received as a member of the Canadian royal Academy of art (RCA) and an art book was published for this occasion by Robert Bernier celebrating Rohrer’s last 20 years of work.
