Artist Statement:

“Jean Triolet’s art reflects his love of life. He mixes and applies paint with raging pleasure or caressing tenderness. His work is full of momentum, and as he brings things down to a small scale…he checks his passion abruptly to produce a detail with meticulous care”
Francis Chamant, Academy of Aix-Marseille
