    Artigas Planas is a Spanish sculptor who was born in 1960 and graduated in Fine Arts in 1985. For many years he was a teacher at the Barcelona College of Art and an artist. Today, he is retired from teaching and devotes himself solely to sculpture. His figures glide, dream, look, listen, rest or cry, but never fall from their pedestals. The 'woman' is reproduced ad infinitum, because she is infinity, the artist tells us. Artigas Planas gives her pride of place, combining colours ranging from blue-green to black. For the artist, composition is not limited to bronze, it goes beyond that and occupies a wider space in his universe. Artigas Planas situates his work in space, in the material, by creating pedestals in corten or metal with a rusty patina, sometimes imposing but always harmonious. From wall sculptures to pedestals, the artist never tires of creating.
    Artigas Planas has been included in numerous collections, and continues to have a presence in Spain, as well as in Denmark, Norway, Germany, Belgium and France.

    The artist created a monumental sculpture for the town of Talence, which can be seen at the entrance to the new Halles, see the sculpture.

    The gallery's words

    A few years ago, I was facing Joan's sculptures at a show in Nîmes. Seeing that my eyes did not leave his stand, the gallerist who represented him came to talk to me about his work and offered me to introduce me the artist who was to come on the show. It only took us a few minutes to establish this bond of trust that characterizes our relationship. Since 2012 Joan's "little ladies" live in the gallery and make the happiness of our customers. A beautiful recognition for this artist who will see in 2018 one of his sculptures, represent the city of Talence through "City envy". His monumental sculpture will welcome you at Les Halles de Talence (33).

  • BERTHAUD Patrick

    Patrick BERTHAUD is passionate about sculpture from an early age. He was received as a Companion Sculptor on Stone in 1998 and worked on cathedral sites, a great experience that continued to fuel his passion for sculpture. His various experiences lead him to master many materials such as bronze, resins, stone and terracotta. Patrick Berthaud continued in this direction and created his workshop in 2001.
    The artist then made many public commissions but also reserved time for his creation and for training, former Companion he kept in him the importance of transmission.
    Patrick Berthaud's artistic universe revolves around his questions about human nature, its strengths, weaknesses, emotions and limits. Works that carry messages. A recent work on the series "Les Labyrinthes" reveals all the mastery and power of the artist.

    The gallery's words

    Patrick Berthaud was traveling to Bordeaux when he came to visit the Gallery. He felt in harmony in the artistic universe that we represented and discussed with Juliette a possible collaboration. My first meeting with the artist was his portfolio that he gave us.When I discovered "Contact", the crush was immediate. From this sculpture emanates a surprising power that freezes the moment. Patrick Berthaud realizes many monumental sculptures, he masters his art without losing emotion and sensitivity. After a few exchanges, we agreed together on a first introduction of his works in the gallery.

  • BERTRAND Claude
    Claude Bertrand, born in 1949, initially trained as a landscape gardener but the reality of the job did not correspond to his poetic soul. Encounters, transmission and the human aspect take an important place in his daily life. In parallel to his professional life, he works with wood and learns about sculpture through training courses, then he discovers black marble, a revelation, an unexpected encounter. This noble and demanding material requires great expertise and Claude Bertrand is passionate about this meticulous work, his sculpture evolves, his style becomes more precise and opens the doors of the greatest galleries. Claude continues to teach, but this time sculpture, unable to bring himself to move away from what nourishes his being: the human being.
    The encounter with a new material, schist, and more particularly old vine posts, rekindled his curiosity. He decided to give new life to a stone anchored in the earth, the vine, marked by years of exploitation, and to revive all its beauty. The schist used by Claude Bertrand is laminated with iron, which gives it a warm and lively oxidation in its raw appearance. The artist's hands are guided by the natural composition of the stone, respecting what nature offers him. He plays with the roughness, the nuances and draws slender, feminine silhouettes, as an integral part of the universe. Each work is a tribute to nature, to life.
    Today Claude Bertrand divides his time between the search for blocks of schist, sculpture and teaching, activities that are absolutely inseparable and very similar, teaching is to find "the stone" that is in everyone and allow it to reveal what is beautiful about it, an analogy, a syllogism, a revelation that makes his daily life a hymn to life.


    The gallery's words

    A human encounter of extreme generosity, just like the artist's work. The works and the artist are rooted in life, the earth and nature. Claude is sincere and attentive, respecting both the material and the character that comes to life in his hands. He magnifies the rock, inviting it to reveal its deepest secrets.

  • BORGHI Pascal
    Pascal Borghi is the memory of a past, the witness of an era. At a very young age he joined the army and spent 2 years in Lebanon in the middle of the civil war. Barely 20 years old, he will keep indelible traces of this period and the intimate conviction that it must serve to denounce and become aware. In 2001, when nothing prepared him for it, he discovered the land. His fingers touch and plunge into the matter, a sensation he will never forget. Inevitably bodies appear from his hands, recounting this painful past but also paying tribute to man's resistance. Pascal Borghi learns to tame matter. With time and practice, he will extract the essential from it. His work is raw, no frills even in the supports. His works in stoneware or bronze are generally planted at the top of a stem as an elevation of the body towards a better world. All the strength of the artist lies in his sincerity and humanity. Each work is visceral, indispensable.
    The words of the gallery

    First it was an email I received a few years ago that caught my attention. Pascal was contacting me on behalf of a confrere. I was captivated by the strength and conviction of the works presented, but it was only later that we got in touch again. The work had evolved further, we were getting to the essential, to the irreducible sculpture. Pascal came to show me his works in the gallery, a feeling that comes from deep within, this is what the artist had just offered me.  I listened to the artist talk to me about his life, his feelings, his sincerity and his simplicity conquered me.

    2022, exhibition

    Artist in the depths of herself Val Carr-Ortolan, born in Gabon in 1965, started with painting, her first love, to finally reveal herself through sculpture more than 20 years ago.
    It is in 2005 that we discover for the first time her work. A very marked artistic identity in which power, strength and softness intermingle inviting the hand to touch, feel, perceive the intention of the artist.
    Val makes us rediscover sculpture through her favorite material, paper. Works of art that are delicate and imposing at the same time, with soft and sober patinas that fully restore the artist's intention.
    Val Carr-Ortolan works on two themes of predilection : man and animal, separately or constituting the inseparable duo of the story she tells us.
    In 2013, Val Carr-Ortolan obtained the second special mention of the jury at the 11th International Biennial of Sculpture in Rambouillet, in 2016, the second prize for sculpture and the Univers des Arts prize at the International Academy of Arts in Paris.
    In 2017, she wins the artists' prize and the public's prize at the Carrara Trophy held at the Saint-Lô National Stud Farm.

    The gallery’s words

    I discovered Val's work at an art fair, where she presented some of her most captivating works. A marvel, a treasure, the hand involuntarily slips on the work, the touch becomes extraordinary and  the sensuality of the work and the material reveals itself as a matter of course. I acquired one of her works to offer it to someone very dear to me, the magic of the work worked, the emotion spoke, a moment I will never forget. The encounter with the artist was just as natural and we decided to work together.

  • CHESNEAU Pascal
    Pascal Chesneau, born in 1967 in Brittany, chose a completely different professional path than the one he is known for today by training as a boiler maker and pipe fitter. After a few contracts in the early 2000s, he decided to complete his knowledge of materials and trained as a cabinetmaker. Pascal then imagined himself as a wood sculptor but the town of Lisieux commissioned him to create a work in metal to be placed on a roundabout, the metal caught up with him!
    In 2014, he won the Wildlife Artist of the Year award from the prestigious Shepherd Foundation in London, which was the real trigger for his career. Pascal Chesneau is very involved in the protection of endangered species and has been working with the Foundation since that time. In addition to the desire to give transparency and lightness to the metal, one can also see in it the symbol of these endangered animals.
    The artist hunts down car parts, bonnets and roofs to give them new life by chiselling them like lace. Wild animals are born between his expert fingers, a few lines, just the necessary and the eye will do the rest.

    Awards :
    -Rosini Award, Snaa Bry sur Marne 2013 -
    -Wildlife Artist Of the Year Award, David Shepherd Foundation 2014

    -Estades Award, Snaee Bry sur Marne 2015
    -Taylor Foundation Award, Salon des Artistes Français, Art Capital 2015

    The gallery's Words 

    I have known Pascal Chesneau's work for several years, I like his agility, his magician's hands which, from a hard and opaque material, manage to sketch a light and fragile silhouette, to enhance the power and fragility of animal species. It is with great pleasure that he joins the artists of the gallery.
  • CHEUVA Chantal
    Originally from Northern France, trained at the Beaux Arts of Lille and Roubaix, she is a sculptor since the age of 20. C. Cheuva works in a urge a sculpture close to Expressionism. Her signature remains powerful and spontaneous.
    More recently, she directs her creations in patinated plaster, and bronze.
    Year-round, she runs a live model workshop as well as internships and theme weekends.
    Present in numerous personal and collective exhibitions, her work is presented in gallery and international art fair.
    Her artworks evokes the life of everyone, of a generation. This universal subject confronts us with an disturbance but a profoundly true reality. The artist invites us to react, reflect, and put an end to this passivity to become truly actors in our society.

    The gallery's words

    I discovered the work of Chantal Cheuva on a show in Lille, her sculptures were a few meters from me, and captivated me. A very beautiful energy emanated from this work and the presence of these "women on the move" became addictive. A few months later, the artist contacted me to offer me a collabration. I then discovered an artist of great sensitivity, very attached to the human relationship. I had the great pleasure of counting her among our artists and presenting her in Knocke, Belgium, before introducing her work to Bordeaux.

    Exhibition 2023
  • DE SUTTER Chantal

    Born in 1959 in Etterbeek, Chantal de Sutter has been attracted by art since she was young. Her encounter with her future husband, Robert de Sutter, will be a decisive event in her life. Both of them being passionate by sculpture, they created an art foundry and craft the lost wax works of other artists. There was only a few step to go before working on their artistic creations. Chantal has explored very different universes letting her imagination wonder into childhood but also to women and their femininity. Her work has been so successful that the artist has not been able to continue her work of foundry and after 20 years to oscillate between foundry and workshop, Chantal has been exclusively devoted to her artistic creations. Present in the largest gallery the artist enjoys a good reputation.


    The words of the gallery

    At first I discovered her childish universe, with colorful balloons, children pointing their noses to the sky, horses straight out of the imagination. Chantal created a magical atmosphere that attracted attention. Then I discovered over the years new artworks equally interesting, characters, slender, refined and sensitive, which highlight femininity and elegance.

  • DE SUTTER Robert

    Robert De Sutter, Belgian sculptor born in 1957 in Forest, son of Clement De Sutter jewelrt designer and founder lost wax and small son of the painter Ernest De Sutter, inevitably fell into the world of art. He studied  arts and crafts in Brussels in the 70s and refines its training alongside great artists like Rick Poot, Jef Vanturenhout, Pierre Caille, Olivier Leloux...and working different materials : bronze, stone, earth and wax.

    In 19777 he met Chantal De Block and both cdreate a foundry lost wax in which they perform the bronze works of many artists. After 20 years of experience as founders, they decide not to devote more than to their own creations. Stylish and refined, the caracters of Robert displayed great restraint. The bronze stretchand settle in breaks of rare elegance where the line and the curve play an essential role, wearing shell, ostrich egg, colored ceramic that cannot fail to emphasize the intrinsic beauty of his work.

    The gallery's words

    The work of the artist was presented to us by an artist's agent. I was immediately seduced by Robert's "unreal" universe. Figures with simplified silhouettes, simple attitudes, bodies in conversation. The bronze and ceramic alliance brings softness and serenity, an atypical universe that we wanted to share with our collectors.

  • DUPIN-SJÖSTEDT Elisabeth

    The human being is the main subject of Elisabeth Dupin Sjöstedt's work. This slender bodies, with suggerated shapes, are in a moving position or static. Their detailed faces reveals a mysterious personnality.

    The artist transports us in different times, past or future, real or fantasized.

    Clay, faience or sandstone, allors the artist to give life to the characters. Fabric, wood, or even sand are sometimes mixed with the clay. The artist lives in the Val de Marne, in France, and studied at the famous Ecole du Louvre, in Paris. She has won numerous awards. Elisabeth proposes a walk through singular worlds, and makes us want to imagine new ones, populated by her mystical creations.

    « How to deal with our world, if it’s not with the body we live in. Thanks to it, we can see, feel and find out this multiple and magical universe. The faces and the characters I create in clay allows me to explore even more the material but also its essence. While I work on a face, I expect somone to appear. Whenever ot occurs, the spirit and the material get then mixed together, that’s when it makes sense.

    Here’s the duality I try every time to define and reunite.

    Through this quest, lots of faces and characters come out./ We can’t say wich counrty, which erat hey belong to. But what they have in common is this mysterious humanity, endlessly moveing and animated by the invisible. » Elisabeth Dupin-Sjöstedt

    The gallery's words

    We often look for new artists, but they sometimes show up to us. Elisabeth Dupin Sjöstedt came to the gallery during a stay in Bordeaux. She felt in her environment and spent time discovering the work of other artists. After a few exchanges she introduced me to her work. Not only did I really appreciate the person, but the discovery of the work was just as interesting. The decision to work together was obvious. Elisabeth has a very sweet universe, in which we feel good immediately. Faces, couples, made of porcelain, express a great delicacy. Elisabeth has brought a touch of sweetness to the gallery and it is always with great pleasure that we discover her new works.

  • FERNANDO Béatrice

    Béatrice Fernando first studied art history before dedicating herself to sculpture. Working the material seems to be a vital need for her, as she gives life to her creations.

    Her works are made of a unique material, melting sand, ceramic and sandstone. it allows her to create slender silhouettes with expressive facial features and a raw look. Béatrice poses on the mankind her piercing eye, probing deep inside every human being. Well represented on the market, she exhibited in several renowm locations, including one of parisian's most prestigious gallery, on boulevard Saint germain. 
    She received the bronze medal of Arts, sciences, and Letters in Paris in June 2010. In 2011, she won the gold medal at the 13th international salon of Pezenas.

    The gallery's words

    Beatrice Fernando introduced me to her world several years ago. Back then, I had already been fascinated by her work that revolved around bullfighting. In 2016 I crossed it on an art show with new subjects that corresponded more to our artistic orientations. Reserved and friendly, Beatrice has accepted our collaboration proposal and since we are pleased to represent her work. Beatrice has her own world but also a technique developed, a material of her composition. Her sculptures have an incredible presence that can sometimes be disturbing. Beatrice is one of those sculptors who do not leave anyone indifferent.

  • FOURMY Bérénice
    Born in 1975, Bérénice Fourmy has always been drawn to art. As a child, she recalls being intrigued by the sacred medieval paintings in the small church of her village; she was mesmerized by them. It was only natural, then, that a few years later, she chose to pursue studies in Art History, specializing in medieval wall paintings. In 2002, she published a book titled "Seeing and Believing: Medieval Wall Paintings in Touraine."
    Very hands-on, Bérénice enjoys working with stone and any materials she has at her disposal. So, it was only natural for her to simultaneously take evening classes in a ceramics workshop in Touraine and then in the Vosges.
    Gradually, clay began to take up more and more space in her daily life until she fully devoted herself to it in 2008. At first, faces emerged amidst other materials. Bérénice enjoys combining clay with other substances; they enrich and elevate each other while maintaining the sobriety and purity of the sacred images that nourished the artist in her youth. The softness of the lines and subjects reflects a desire to capture the essence; the color palette is restricted, with clay predominating, and the message emerges. Recently, bodies have taken shape, supporting the unique expression of faces marked by astonishment; they perch on supports in perfect harmony with the characters, adding even more lightness. Bérénice Fourmy's sculptures are enhanced by the combination of different materials and a simple wax patina, foregoing glaze to return to the truth of bare clay.
    Influenced by her stay in Tahiti for a few years, Bérénice now enriches her works with elements of nature provided by the islands (coconuts, shells, corals...), always ensuring to maintain the simplicity and authenticity of these characters.

    Discover 2024 exhibtion

    The gallery's words:

    Bérénice contacted me in early 2024 to present her work. Initially, I discovered the photos attached to the email, and it was love at first sight. I appreciated the simplicity, the earth kept in its natural state, the monochrome palette without any frills, and the underlying questioning. These little characters perched above a world full of questions sometimes seemed surprised, other times amazed, or even worried, but always enveloped in great gentleness and benevolence. We then spoke directly, and I appreciated the energy emanating from the artist; her work reflected her. I am delighted to share with you this lovely find that undoubtedly will also stir your emotions.
  • GREGOIRE Bertrand

    Designer, technoplastician, Bertrand Gregoire graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse, began his career by creating the design agency I.D.forme. He won the Gold award for the Medical Design Excellence Awards of New York in 2008.
    Through a subtle contemporary blend of Pop'art and 3D pixelation, the artist proposes here a series of antagonistic busts, opposing their two facial halves, as much by their definitions and their materials, as by their textures and colors.
    In this new series he addresses various iconic inspirations, themes that are dear to him; Prehistoric Venus, ancient deities, vanities, while revisiting bestiary registers and other figures of comics and cartoons ...
    The artist takes us into a sensitive universe; from the deep blackness of an abrupt matrix to the brilliant brilliancy of the rhinestones, from the implacable modernity of the cube Shape to the sensitivity of the classical volutes gilded with the leaf, as to better express the ambivalence which resides in each of our complex personalities.
    So many faces that seem to emanate from their original mold, emerging figures of their concepts, passing from a pixilated virtual sketch to their very real expressiveness.
    At the time of the 3D printer and all digital, even though the artist is inspired by it as a postulate of departure, the bill of his works on the other hand, is not less artisanal, in the tradition of modeling and resin cast in his studio, in very limited series, which makes them exceptional pieces.
    While conventional sculpture strives to "show" and contemporary art only "demonstrates", the artist's work is part of a contemporary approach, while confirming his deep love for the material.

    The words of the gallery

    Bertrand Grégoire came to present his works in 2012 at the gallery. In line with the ready-made, the artist combined recovery and creation, mixing techniques of diversion and foundry where mechanical parts and spent cans rub shoulders. It was a blow of heart, a really unusual work that we immediately presented in gallery and which was a great success.
    Still in research and perfectionist, Bertrand announced a new job that I waited impatiently without knowing what to expect. The surprise was there again and without hesitation I decided to present it to you. Bertrand Grégoire takes a real pleasure in searching, designing, creating this new work shows yet another side of his artistic creation no doubt we will still have good surprises.

  • GUERRIN Anne
    Initially a vital attraction for the earth. As a farmer's daughter, born in the country, Anne Guerrin has been touching it since she was a child, touching it , breathing it,  triturating, a vital need that has never ceased to inhabit her. After several moves it is in the beautiful setting of the natural park of Upper Languedoc, where the natural elements express their strength and are conducive to creation that she decided to settle and install her studio.
    The "Sages" are universal beings who have gone through time, there is in them something that is of the order of ancestral memory. They are born from the path of a life, an interest in the sacred, this one mani-festing itself in several forms, rites, symbols, myths, readings ... the observation of the man placed at the center of everything. Those who wear skirts or dresses around the world and who attract his attention are religious but also some butoh dancers.
    The words of the gallery
    I met Anne in 2014, she had commitments that did not allow us, at that time, to collaborate. At the end of 2019 the artist, freed from her commitments, gets back in touch with a work that asserts itself, even more charismatic characters, a universe that seduces me.
    The works speak of breaks, spirituality, transversality, an approach that seduces me.
    Biography of Hellen Halftermeyer.
    The wire sculptures of Hellen, we discover by projection works that the eye does not immediately discover. Volumes take shape when they are suspended or clung to the wall.
    An expressive work that complements an already established painter.

    2022, exibition


    Mirogi practiced as a physiotherapist and osteopath, which allowed her to perfect her knowledge of anatomy. An incredible combination of circumstances would change her career path when she discovered Annick Aublet's studio in 1999. Mirogi then worked days and nights to record years of experience as a physiotherapist. The body, she controls it, she just has to let go of her perception of femininity.
    The artist works from living models in the studio and is accustomed to finishing the pieces at home, especially the hands and faces that require a lot of attention to detail.
    Mirogi creates finished works where the patinas perfectly reflect the play of light on the bodies. Mirogi is an artist with an assertive style, exhibited in the most prestigious galleries. Many of her bronzes have been included in beautiful collections in France and abroad.

    The gallery's words

    Mirogi's sculptures were presented to me by an artist's agent. In addition to the aesthetic aspect of his work, I appreciated the postures and the knowledge of the body. Mirogi's works are timeless, we fully feel the femininity of her subjects and their fragility.

  • SUTTER Philippe
    Philippe Sutter pays homage to life, to love and to loved ones, to beauty and its universality. He magnifies emotions, eliciting their expression and opening a breach in our visceral darkness to access the light. Beauty of the soul, beauty of being, beauty of self, its quest brings out the deepest essence of harmony, fullness and spirituality in each of us. The Medici vase becomes the revealing symbol of the link: the foot anchored in the earth, the heart a true alcove of feelings and the open bell turned towards the celestial, all in perfect alignment finds a salutary balance lifting us towards the light. For Philippe, everything is vibratory: words written on paper, interwoven sounds that give rhythm to his gestures, emotions that nourish his work. The artist searches endlessly for the perfect gesture that will reveal the intrinsic link between the 4 elements in a sublimated sensory vibration.
    From the clay he extracts porcelain, from the crystallised enamels light, and this symphony of materials goes so far as to reveal the mirage of crystal and its voluptuousness. There are no more than 50 artists in the world who have mastered this technique of fire, which links them to the material. Philippe Sutter has drawn on techniques, encounters, literature and philosophy over and over again.
    "From clay we make a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds what we want" Lao Tzu. As we lean over this pot, this crater, this circular symbol of contemporaneity, we might hear Plato, Socrates, La Boétie, Voltaire or Diderot whispering a few thoughts to us.

    The gallery's words

    Philippe arrived at the gallery accompanied by Sophie Bassot, his painter friend, who had come to drop off the works in her exhibition. He placed the Medici vase on the desk to show me his work, and it was at that precise moment that emotion overcame me, silently telling me to put my hands on it - the object had become a work of art. I gently caressed the heart, in an almost religious way. The attraction was intense, and as someone who has never presented an 'object' in the gallery, I couldn't bring myself to let it leave. This same intimacy was shared 2 hours later by a collector who, as soon as he crossed the threshold, also entered this moment suspended in time, the meeting had taken place, and it is now part of his collection.
    Until this unexpected meeting, I didn't know Philippe Sutter, so we reversed the order of things, and sometimes that's essential. Philippe's extreme sensitivity and sincerity, combined with his passion, make him a generous person with a captivating eloquence when it comes to talking about the Medicis.
