Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Pierre-Jean Couarraze





Couarraze

est né en 1944 à Pau, mais c'est à Montparnasse, à l'académie de la Grande Chaumière qu'il nous dévoile son goût très vif de la poésie et de la littérature, sa passion pour la peinture l'ont poussé à découvrir le monde et ses civilisations.
Son art témoigne avec force de cette rencontre et ses oeuvres sont ici comme pour nous donner un morceau d'éternité.

Couarraze

was born in 1944. It was in Montparnasse, at the academy "la Grande Chaumière", that he unveil his taste for poetry and literature. His paintings provides one an intellectual comfort because they express an essential reality that reaches one's fantasy.
The real dimension of his painting lies in our mythical surroundings, in the unknown as an irrational immensity and in our lost secrets....
