    Between his birth in Nantes on June 20, 1937 and the consecration of his life as an artist painter, Jean Duquoc's life has been a series of passionate events.

    The youngest of a large bourgeois family from Nantes, a tot with the brown curly locks and big blue eyes, already amazed and wondering about life and the world, he had a happy childhood, with an intellectual, art and music loving, father, and a mother with a rural up-bringing and the down to earth common sense typical of people of the land. His works on Bigoudène peasant women were no doubt inspired by and an undeniable tribute to his mother, whom he worshiped.

    He has always been passionate about art. His early professional life clearly illustrates this. He started out in advertising, then in art publishing, distinguishing himself as the creator of the commercial art calendar, reproducing contemporary painting and works of art.

    An "amateur" painter at the age of 40, he then devoted himself to painting, to "his paint-ing." He very quickly found his way into working with color, is now recognized as a talented color-ist, and his works are exhibited and admired around the world.

    "Painting tells a story of the present, of landscapes, of people," says Jean Duquoc, "it is only possible when driven by a sense of love fed by memory," Jean Duquoc continues. His native Brittany, known as the Land of the Setting Sun, has long been and remains his main source of inspiration, one of the reasons I have been so interested in Jean Duquoc's work.

    Along with his own comments, let me quote Arnaud Karsfeld (a defender of the cause of art). "A painter must seize the substance of even regional, sometimes historical events, of peo-ple simply living their lives, of intense landscapes, and of a record of our times.”

    This is the very essence of Jean Duquoc's approach.

    In his work, we can see the skill with which he uses color, moving directly into the essential, in the force of the intensity of expression, becoming strikingly admirable in its rendering of living beauty. He often structures surfaces decoratively, playing curved and straight lines against each other, along with landscapes rendered by juxtaposing blocks of color surround-ed by black.

    Some may see this way of handling a landscape as an allusion to the Pont-Aven School, with which it is often compared. But is not finding his own way through all the influences and asserting his uniqueness what an artist finds important? Jean Duquoc has definitely accom-plished this, to the point where we do not need to see his signature to recognize his work.

Jean Duquoc

France Born in: 1937

Originally from Nantes, Jean Duquoc remains faithful to his native Brittany, but his talents as a colorist, inspired by Fauvism, allow him to go beyond the simple "regionalist" representation of a setting sun or a seascape. His paintings vibrate, dazzle, amaze because for him color represents a form of balance of the world. His bright and warm colors make him a different artist, recognizable to the

first look. The title of his exhibition at the Jardin du Luxembourg "The Sacred in the Intensity of Landscapes" perfectly reflects the work of Jean Duquoc for whom "Every place is the center of the world and everything is sacred."
