Bernard-Marie Lauté

Born in: 1943


Born in 1943, Bernard-Marie Lauté lives and works in Brittany since 1971.

Bernard-Marie Lauté plays with colors and light in allusive representations filled with nature. His work is an infinite continuation in which every day brings a discovery. He returns constantly on his work; correct, find the balance, start again indefatigably until life irrigates all the surface of the painting: "How long it will it take for my "work" to get as close as possible to what I want to reach?", he wonders.

Introduced to painting at 16 by Paul Bigo, cleric keen on modern art, he starts his career as photographer at the "Réunion des Musées Nationaux". Bernard-Marie Lauté leaves the Paris region in 1971 for Brittany after he discovered Ouessant. Begin then the years of apprenticeship and of important meetings such as with Marguerite and Aimé Maeght and Jean Guichard-Meili.

In 1977, Guillaume Beaugé, prize-winner of the Casa Velasquez, invites him to join him in a cortijo, in Frigiliana, where he practices watercolor under the burning Andalusian sun. At the beginning of the 80's, he joins a group of friends painters led by Alexandre Hollan, Janos Ber and Jean-Baptiste Ambroselli with whom he will exhibit around Paris. In 1990, he realizes the stained-glass windows of the Anne de Gaulle's Foundation Chapel near St Rémy-les-Chevreuse with the cooperation of Jacques Bony. In 1997, he is part of the Valley of Perrier art adventure in Kermoroc'h with Jean-Luc Bourel, Catherine Urien and Jan Maï.

Two years later, is the first of a series of exhibitions in the Gallery Art/space of Thonon-les-Bains, who will be followed by a famous project due to Pome Jacques and to her friend Catherine Bouchetal: to realize eight exhibitions at the same time in eight altitude refuges in the Mont Blanc mountains. Roland Naouri made possible an exhibition at "The Argonautes" bookstore and on the same year, he stays in Turin at Léa Gyarmati and Francesco Franco.

Since 2003, he realized eight short movies and medium-length films and he also was the inspirator of several exhibitions as those dedicated to Frédéric Chigaden and to Jean Guichard-Meili, as well as for a presentation of the wood engraved works of Louttre. B in the mill of Blanchardeau.
