Bertrand Flour

Bertrand Flour is a numeric artist who had learnt engraving at École supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Nantes as well as painting at École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris before familiarizing himself with new technologies-as soon as the nineties-within the Apple Computer France’s Graphic studio.

 

His graphical universe is focused on the one hand on the human being he represents in a more or less abstract way through some Black images (cosmic) or White images (carnal), on the other about the woman he ceaselessly represents under the guise of Aphrodite with-to date-more than five thousand drawings. Bertrand Flour is also the author of a complete artwork about the Pensées of Blaise Pascal which he has realized in the past in partnership with the Musée national de Port-Royal des Champs and a monumental artwork consecrated to The Eleven of September due-at that time-to his numerous stays in United States. All that touches our being in general fascinates him, that is why he connects the body and the spirit in each of his informatics artworks.

Method

 

My computer images are realised in the manner of the Ancients, that is to say progressively rising and uniformely the background in shades (red) before putting colour (this painting’s ancestral technique permits to raise the subject with shards of light), but my artistic process especially consists of saving the successive stages tied to the creation’s process assisted by the computer.

 

I use an «electronic stylus» as well as a «graphic tablet» for drawing visual on the screen before having defined an arbitrary format which corresponds to the real dimension of the printed image.

 

The different internal functions of the graphic software used allow me then to recast my image in accordance with aesthetic criterias which are not so far from the pictural classicism.

 

A computerised graphic work is so the result of many successive stages in the same way as a master’s painting, that is why first of all I concentrate on the tree view of the subject.

 

The numerical printing is the final phase also requiring a savoir-faire for materialising my images, because machines are only vulgar tools that the plastic artist has to manipulate with ease.»

 

Bertrand Flour, in line with David, is distinguishable because of his taste for modernity.

 

«I am terribly classical in spite of my fascination for the electronic arts.»

«I aspire to a new art with pictorial resonances.»

Art and Cosmogony

 

Bertrand Flour likes to sound out the cosmic black: regenerative substance for beings taken with spirituality.

 

The univers’ fringes are circles than the-inspired-creator fit in a part of his brain. Nothing cannot distort his overflowing imagination which swell itself from so many original matter.

 

Obscur worlds left to the Poet (celestial star).

 

«Troubling sensation than that total black espousing the dreams.»

«My soul roams in the celestial delight.»

«This eternal black take away our lonely souls.»

«A saint obscurity seep across the void.»

«Touch the Eternal by sounding obscurity.»

«Work on the absolute black as like if nothing cannot be more stronger than the void.»

Black digital images

 

The Black digital images are directly created on the computer with a tablet graphic and an electronic pencil. They represent my interior visions plunged into an atmosphere at one time obscure and religious where life seems supernatural.
