ZUBER Jean, painting, Permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since 2006

“It is not important to revolutionize, but to transform and interpret the world differently and diversely.
To be concerned with this world. There is what is read and what is seen.
Art can appear at one point and disappear at (others) another.
We must remain vigilant.


Jean Zuber, Extract of Meeting at the transformation point, Editions Galerie Capazza, 2013
