" These works exist only because at some point you stopped time and have laid your eyes on a landscape, a flower, a face, a body, a fruit or object and you have found it beautiful . And your paintings, drawings immortalize the vision you have of this beauty. This look is what brushstroke that gently walks on the canvas, leaving the option of inspiration traces or color buttons that magically reveal your soul.

You give us a lesson of wisdom, for if we could all take time, moments, just like you before your easel to watch and contemplate not just see what surrounds us, only with eyes and heart ; enclosing our ideas, our beliefs, our judgments in one of the cupboards of our brain, we would feel lighter, available and tolerant. I think we all, painters or not, are able to achieve this miracle still have to want it and believe it.

Thank you ladies and gentlemen artists to show us and dare to show us, everyone at your level, what you are able to realize and unveil a part of yourself beyond appearances.

I also thank Jean-Marc RIVES who can transmit to his students beyond the technique, passion. It's sort of the therapist, which opens the path of self-discovery, faculties that are in each of you and that day after day you discover. "

Jean-François MICHEL - Mayor of Santeuil
