Bernard Marie Collet


Bernard Collet makes a joyful painting, in love with life. Painting is for him a way of appropriating a fragment of reality and making it still vibrate flat and otherwise on the limited surface of the canvas. Between figuration and abstraction he seeks to transmit his emotion by playing with the shapes, the lights and the colors to approach a purely plastic form of harmony. "We can look," he says, "a landscape, a face, a sky like a sum of colored shapes without any other meaning than those of their own vibrations, their respective" weights ", their location on the level. My painting is a representation of reality at the same time as a simple presentation of an abstract colorful plan. Abstraction and figuration are like my two painter legs. And to box, is inevitable, I rely more on one leg than on the other. But it is for me a source of diversity, adventures, renewal, even discovery. " In recent years he has produced works inspired by the landscapes and the vegetation of the tropics. Read: Opt for a jungle trend with Bernard Marie Collet
