Interview of Jean Dolande
– How did you come to take up painting?
As seeker after emotions, I have experienced the word, then the gesture of the mime; I wanted to transpose the same emotion on the canvas.
– How do you work?
According to the emotional scale within which I decide to work through letting go I try to reach emotional purity, just like the ultimate sound of a violin string.
– Painting and emotion?
I’m dedicated to emotion like priesthood. The emotion is pure, ultimate and vibrant and enables you to approach some truth, it projects you beyond yourself.
– What do colours mean for you?
Colours have a vibratory impact on each of us and allow us to reset our energies. Imagine life as a system made up of multiple and infinite vibrations among which human beings act as transmitters, receptors of vibrations.
– Your source of inspiration ?
Asia : Asian culture speaks to me!
– You offer your painting “The artist and the Consciousness of the Whole” to the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Montmarre in Paris, why ?
How can I draw near to God? How can I thank him?
I let myself be guided by my inner intuition, this spiritual force that we have in each of us.
