« Painting is both an inward and outward adventure. My travels in France and overseas have been an integral part of my artistic approach, in search of other cultures and other emotions. I head for the places I endeavor to paint and soak up colors, sounds, smells, fragrances; once I have taken notes, I work in my shop and call on my memory, retrieving sensations of sight, touch, smell, sound, and taste.
My painting is a call to create an emotional and poetic bond with the world around us ».
« I believe that Denis Miau is aligned in the new generation: coming back to a significant evocation of nature, but also including the plastic or expressive freedoms and conquests that modern art in its purest state has culled. That, I feel, is the next step. »

…Today with over 1500 paintings to his credit, Miau’s work has evolved considerably in its openness to the world and in the intrinsic innermost dimension which reminds us that painting bespeaks of spirituality. I like it that each work by this artist keeps its secret, and if not entirely so, at least certain elements that defy analysis or strictly material comparison. I value its fresh inspiration, its sense of conviction, and a certain spiritual and poetic density. Gushing spring water and the alchemist’s fixed light seem to me to define accurately Denis Miau’s work and adventure in the visual arts, with its underpinnings of genuine humility in the face Nature.
