Philosopher Gilles Deleuze wroteto Delcol about his work : “ … what moves me so much in your painting is the intensity you reach in the gaze of your characters … even the drooping eyelids (most often in men), do not hide, but follow such a heavy gaze … I am grateful to have discovered your work, and whish to express my admiration”.
