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.
