Interview with Artist


 
         




Artist Statement

Henri Bertrand
Sculptor

In my creative quest, I draw inspiration from the past and present forces that have contributed to the shaping of the terrestrial globe.

Once I have chosen the pieces of wood that best evoke what I see as the marks of the time and place in which they evolved, I transform them into a combination of folds, forms, tensions, colours and rhythms to which I often associate heterogeneous metallic elements.

This gives birth to sculptures by which I try to express my sensibility to natural forces and time scales, blindly denied by our modern societies.

Swiss geographer and artist, I spent two years in British Columbia, and now work again on the shores of Lake Geneva.
