"Abstract art, abstract painting, transfiguration occurs with random strokes or a balance of form born of chance and deliberate graphics. Form emerges, colours take their place, graphics are added to the canvas after careful consideration. Jean-Pierre Vieville is in constant quest of balance. Balance, for the artist, is the keyword. Chance/deliberation, form/graphics, conformism/anarchy. His innermost wish is not to find that balance, but to maintain the momentum required to achieve it. To find that balance would be to end up imprisoned in a tiresome cliché."
- Nicole Meunier for Jean-Pierre Vieville abstract painter. Translation by Elisabeth Hiscott in New-York
