Designer, technoplastician, Bertrand Gregoire graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse, And began his career by creating the design agency I.D.forme. member of the OPQDI, administrator of the design center Midi Pyrénées ... 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.
