The works of French abstract painter Jean Miotte (b. 1926, Paris) are associated with the art style known as L'Art Informel, which is often considered France's equivalent to America's Abstract Expressionism. Since attending the Russian ballets in London during the 1940's, Miotte's work has been greatly influenced by the energy and movement of music and dance, which he expresses below.
For me dance, choreographic expression, appears as the most acute gesture, instant and intangible, once given and then forever captured by the eye; movement, shifting lines, fixing them in our imagination and in time – abstract art par excellence. What a fantastic thing is the communion between the arts – between painting, music and choreography.
