In terms of form the works of Jacques Weyer belongs definitely to the geometric abstraction or the constructivism. In his earlier period his paintings were characterized by simple shapes; a play of lines and surfaces, where colorful elements contrast against a white or dark background. Using horizontal lines give us an impression of calm and musicality. The more recent works are more complex in shape with diagonals creating a dynamic force in the distribution of the surface. In his works Jacques Weyer does not hold dogmatically to the use of a minimal number of primary colors such as yellow, blue and red, characteristic for the first period of Constructivism.

In terms of technique, Jacques Weyer creates his works first in numerous sketches and gouaches on paper. The later execution is done with acrylic paint on paper, cardboard or cloth, but without the intervention of tape, to accentuate the natural route of the hand.

The personal choice in his work of shades and the a poetic and lyrical slant bear witness to the very own style of Jacques Weyer.
