For more than fifteen years, Jean-Marc Quittard has transcribed the body and its complexities. For him, the work on the body is perceived as a new theatricality. He reintroduces into the painting the notions of time, transience and living. His work relies on three main modes of expression: painting, drawing and video, which work in cycles and enrich one another.

While the drawing appears as an immediate, the painting is a narrative reorganization of the body. No realism, no abstraction: JMQ transcends the visual emotion.
The video acts as a documentary fiction of the work of JMQ and its interaction with bodies. It fits into the pictorial work itself, interacting with the painting to give birth to the "videopainting", the new synthesis between painting and video.
