of adventure, of the media effect, of provocation? None of this, the process will be purely personal and the deep commitment will respond to a long
quest for total sincerity. Each site where he will intervene will see a passionate adventure, an encounter with a place, but also with oneself, a trip to
end of oneself.

... As described in guidebooks, the project sounded sophomoric, but one could never have imagined the dramatic impact of mister Verame’s work.
Giant monoliths, painted black dotted an arid plain that glittered with specks of mica. Oval rocks, aqua in color, gargantuan in scale, lay heaped in piles;
Isolated boulders sculptured by wind, resembled bluebirds about to take wing. An enormous cross formed by red and black stones loomed above a boulder
in Easter egg stripes. "

"Without denying his passion for the stones of Sinai or Tibesti, the painter of the great outdoors has just produced a card game with magical figures.
A totally new and unexpected visual concept. Stubbornly away from the listed currents of contemporary art, Jean Verame persists in working
for years alternately in the studio and in the natural space. If his interventions in Sinai, in southern Morocco and in Tibesti, have earned him
international notoriety, they were above all the basis of new approaches, more inventive, more creative, responding to its pressing need to
only really exist when it enters fully and voluntarily into a zone of turbulence. "

"" A Landscape Painter "by Catherine GAYNOR, The Regent Magazine. London." French artist Jean Verame has the strange, possibly unique ability to
perceive in rocks and mountains artistic shapes and forms that he brings vividly to life with huge quantities of paint (...) His most recent mammoth
undertaking was last year, when he ventured into the heart of Tibesti, an arid volcanic area of Chad, central Africa, a country which had barely recovered
from a long period of conflict with Lybia. After three month of hard labor in the desert, Verame created quite literally a monumental work of art ".

that Alain Houdin presents to us today in his new gallery against a backdrop of photos from Tibesti. (...) No more connection here with his "great shows"
dazzling and inhuman but, however monumental they can sometimes be, sculptures on our scale, truncated bronze menhirs,
unevenly worked with violent chisels, distant, very distant descendants of the stone megaliths of Carnac, colored, patinated with the same
blue so widely used in the Sinai desert as in the heart of the Anti-Atlas ".
"The Visionary of the Desert." By Eric de SAINT ANGEL, VS.D. No. 630. Paris, September-October 1989. "A few weeks earlier, there was nothing.
a plain of sand, rocks and pebbles was coming to die at the foot of the cliff, that was all. Further on loomed the volcanic heights of a hostile massif, two
times as large as the Pyrenees, the Tibesti, and five km to the north, was Bardai, a charming oasis before the war. Bardai on the edge of the desert, with its
ruins of houses and its palm trees toasted by the napalm (...) Since then, south of Bardai something has changed, men have pitched tents, built
scaffolding, leaning ladders against the cliff and they began to paint (...) In N’Djamena, Hissein Habré keeps himself informed at all times,
gets photos sent as the work evolves and becomes more diverse. Today, 35 km from the Lybian lines, a unique site in the world has replaced the
napalm burns and bomb and rocket craters. Where before there was nothing but the ugliness of war, Verame has captured the beauty.

closed. An absence which gives the sites painted by Verame their enchanted, almost magical aspect. Here, to invent this supernatural oasis, he alternated
four colors. (....) For the first visitors, amazement mixed with admiration. Failed to understand how five lonely men had

Photo on the cover of the journal and Article. "... Verame’s dialogue with stones began two decades ago in the south of France, where he had gone to pursue
a career as a painter. Like so many artists in the restless years of the sixties, he found himself imprisoned by the limiting dimensions of his canvases, the
walls of his studio, and the enclosed spaces of galleries. He began to take long walks, picking up stones which took his fancy. (...) Corsica was succeded by
a venture which led to West Texas and the Ranch of Stantley Marsh III (...) Verame found a valley walled in on either side by cliffs and, occasionally inhabited
by wondering cattle (...) Designated boulders were moved and set in position at the canyon bottom. The seventeen stones inplanted vertically in the ground
seemed to have existed in situ since the last glacier melted and left them standing like pieces on a giant chess board "

"" Blue in Sinai. "by René CENNI, Nice Matin. June 28, 1981." ... It was wrong to doubt, Jean Verame- a young artist of Belgian origin living in
Paris- has indeed painted the Sinai. or more exactly, he produced a cyclopean pictorial composition on the 90 km2 of a desert plateau at 1500
meters above sea level and about 30 km from the mountain of Moses. He didn't comb the giraffe. He didn't produce one more streak for "amazing
but true. "He did a work of art and in the full sense of the term."
"" A Desert of many colors. "by Pearson PHILLIPS, Telegraph Sunday magazine. London, March 15, 1981." To see the latest wonder of the world requires
a treck to one of loneliest, emptiest spots on earth. In the Southern Sinai peninsula, near the montain down which Moses is reputed to have come with the
stone tablets of the law is a large plateau littered with huge smooth lumps of granite up to 150ft. high ".

Finally pacified, the Sinai desert sleeps under the sun. (...) Yet a few kilometers away, a wind of madness seems to have fallen on this monochrome landscape.
Gigantic blue spots, a dazzling blue, always the same, or black, burst the landscape. No, it's not a mirage: the mountains are
painted. (...) When the peaks of Mount Rushmore were carved in the likeness of American presidents, it was declared that: "These testimonies of our
culture were most likely to reach the next century if a cataclysm swept away our civilization. If such a cataclysm should occur, we can
ask what significance archaeologists would give to Jean Verame's blue and black mountains "
