Jean Duruisseau


Biography and career

Jean Duruisseau

Jean Duruisseau's abstract works are the result of work on the matter.

He paints with a mixture of mineral pigments, marble powder and linseed oil on great Belgian linen woven to measure.

The essential characteristic of his work is this pictorial material that evokes the patina of ancient walls, the raw earth, something primitive and natural.

The layers of paint are the result of constant back and forth on the work, crushing, scraping, scratching, impastos that aim to reach the ultimate point of balance.

Colors must find their right place, and the horizon found in most of his paintings takes shape.

"Emotion comes from the density of matter and perfect chromatic chords.Pierre Wat
