About

Signed at the bottom left About Jean Duquoc by Joelle Kartel 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 colorist, 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. 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. Jean Duquoc has definitely accomplished this, to the point where we do not need to see his signature to recognize his work.
