“Silence imposes itself; words are superfluous…” As sun lights up the landscape, Duquoc becomes its voice and storyteller.

Born in 1937, the lifework of Jean Duquoc is influenced by the landscape of his beloved home in Brittany France. In a long and celebrated career this artist has distinguished his work by bold and saturated canvases - suffused in color. A self-taught painter, Duquoc uninhibitedly and joyously employs primaries to articulate his subject: the sky, the earth, the sea. In crimsons reds, plush earthy greens and vibrant daffodil yellows, the language of the landscape is reduced by the skillful hand of this artist to its quintessential nature. For Duquoc these works are not mere painterly explorations, but transformative works. They are transcendent moments articulated in paint, where the cosmic force of the universe may be seen and explored it is, according to the artist, in moments of quiet reverence that the magnificence of an ever changing and dynamic landscape reveals itself.

Duquoc’s work is highly regarded and collected. His work may be found in both distinguished public and private collections worlwide.

EXHIBIT "Luminosity", January 24 - February 22, 2015. First time exhibit with a full collection of Oil Pastels.

Those acquainted with the paintings of Jean DUQUOC, will happily embrace this masterful collection of pastel works on display at the Canfin Gallery. They are beautiful, vivid renderings rapturously applied. Emphasizing the effects of light on the landscape, and recreating its realities are the constant pursuit of this long celebrated artist. The immediacy of pastel, as medium, allows the artist to explore directly his subject. Founded within these renderings, light and shade dominate his intention. Working in conjunction, through the simultaneous plains of actuality and spiritually, the artist’s clever hand captures the rapture borne of such experience. Reveling in color and its effects he emphasizes in the body of these works his quest for the primacy of tonal harmony, and as always, grounded in unbridled color. MUST SEE COLLECTION - See all available oil pastels on the artist page.
