Here's your chance to win Women with 3 Cats by French painter Bernard Moutin and enjoy an exclusive meet the artist opportunity at The No Suffer Society's 2019 Gala on September 28!
As an architect consultant for over 30 years, Bernard has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. His awakening as an artist occurred in a studio of the Beaux where he produced illustrations for over 10 years. He now dedicates his passion entirely to painting.
From the Artist: When asked about my work, I usually respond in a somewhat provocative way "I do PSEUDO-FIGURATIVE Engaged", which nevertheless corresponds to a part of what I am trying to do. My conviction is that if painting takes shape because of the painter's sensitivity, it must be underpinned by the way he looks at the society in which he lives and the perception he has of his evolutions. Even though it may ultimately prove eternal, it must for me be anchored in the world of today. Beyond the emotion felt, it must be able to have a meaning for the one who looks. This is why purely abstract painting, which has been an important historical moment, if it is only aimed at formal games, colors and matter, seems to me today to be somewhat limited in its potential for expression and of arrest. My paintings are not abstractions. Nor are they aimed at a specific realism. Figuration simply supports meaning. They are a representation and an interpretation of reality. They tell one or more story(s). It is in this spirit that I manifested the exhibition "Les Temps Modernes" at the Gallery l'oeil listening in 2017 with 24 paintings on contemporary issues: communication, loneliness, new technologies, Terrorism, war, environment, ecology, family, universe, fashion, and reinterpretations of famous paintings revisited.
