"Jean-Jacques Dournon's paintings give you a special wind to feel and think, to recall buried emotions, the body of a woman, a bunch of trees, a cliff or the receding sea./.../Because they actually talk to you, these emotions are a stimulus to the visitor to speak and write./.../
To watch, feel, question, follow the path of the work - think because you have felt - think in order to think, while keeping on feeling."

Serge Champeau
