"D’abord, sans doute, on admire. Finesse du trait, délicatesse du coloris, maîtrise superbe du glacis. Et puis, on s’interroge. 
Parce que leur cou est trop grêle pour supporter la tête qui pense, leur nez un peu long, trop pointu, parfaitement apte à détecter les perfidies,  l’œil un peu vide de vie mais pourtant plein d’absence, ces personnages hors d’une chair improbable ont un pouvoir étrange. Sont-ils robots, marionnettes ou simplement humains ? Voilà qui nous met  mal à l’aise ! Ils habitent des fonds glacés, souvent lisses comme un miroir, quelque fois traversés d’étranges météores. Leur planète n’est pas celle des vies ordinaires. On y a fait table rase des certitudes et de leurs contingences.  Nous voici entraînés au pays du silence et des nécessités intérieures cher à Zuters. Peut-être, espère-t-il y rencontrer des âmes, vibrant comme la sienne de la puissance de l’absolue liberté ?"

Telen Tudal

 

"First there might be admiration. Delicate sketching, light colouring, superb control of the glaze. And then, questions arise. 
Because their neck is too gaunt to support their thinking head, because their nose is somewhat long and too sharp, perfectly apt for detecting perfidies, because their look is somewhat lifeless but yet full of loss, these improbably skinless figures have a peculiar force. Are they robots, puppets or simply human beings? We just don’t feel at ease! They live in icy grounds, often as smooth as glass, off and on crossed by strange meteors. Theirs is not the planet of ordinary lives. Certainties and their contingencies have been completely removed. We are swept off to Zuters’ much-loved land of silence and inner necessities. Maybe he hopes to meet souls touched by the force of absolute freedom, just like his?"
