"The work of Luce Fourmaux is gazing at a world which is filled with wonder. Guided by her tenderness and respect, she invents representational solutions which allow for the humblest of things to find their just place. She purifies a perspective which has been darkened by too many cultural feelings, and this breathes in open air and space."
"Here is heartfelt painting which enchants you, rings out and is truly worth discovering."
"A vision of freshness and poetry which passes through dreams into an inborn sense of light."
