    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    At the end of the 1980s, after several years of doubt and research on the form, he began to find his own artistic path by developing the principle of aquagravure. It was in 1994, by making installations and assemblages of heterogeneous objects in the manner of Arcimboldo, that the overall composition took shape for the viewer. The use of photography which recreates the flat image brings it to life. The first major exhibition took place in 1998. This principle of anamorphosis has been the artist's common thread ever since. He tried his hand at larger and worked installations in the form of various inventories reinterpreting various images known from the history of art (Crucifixion, van Gogh, Francis Bacon ...), and from contemporary society (portraits of Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Che Guevara, Mickey…).

Bernard Pras

France Born in: 1952 Bestsellers Masterpieces

Having spent part of his childhood in his grand-mother's grocery store, he has developed a strong and privileged relationship with objects and inventories of all sorts. At the crossing of pop art and performance, in-between figuration and ?dis-figuration?, Bernard Pras?s work doesn't leave any viewer indifferent?

A graduate of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Toulouse in 1974, Bernard Pras is a virtuoso of the anamorphosis and of the juxtaposition of eclectic objects, carefully chosen to be in resonance with his subjects; he creates an image that is comprehensible from a single, pre-defined point of view. this is the art of the secret perspective that Dürer was talking about?

Christian-Louis Eclimont says of the artist:

"An athlete of the optical effect, Pras moves between the infinitely composite and the infinitely composed, using his eye as a camera that captures the patterns while they are being projected.?"

Giving up his paintbrushes and painting for the hand, the object and a camera, he has been appropriating images of art history and contemporary society since 1998. The color and the stroke become object and the composition - an installation punctuated by dozens of images. Without photography, the installations would remain the privilege of a few, unique spectators of this metamorphosis during which the act of recycling becomes art.

Without this final moment that is the last picture taken, marked by a luminous flash, when the artist transforms the three dimensions in only two for the greatest pleasure of our eyes, Bernard Pras?s work could not exist.
