Bernard Garo

Garo has been probing for more than two decades mainly with painting, but also with installations, sculptures, drawings without forgetting photography and performance, the fragile memory of our humanity by measuring the impact as well as the vulnerability of humans in relation to their environment.
His preoccupations focused first on the topographies of passage and oblivion, on the forces of the elements, natural and artificial borders, time and the geological histories of the mountains and more recently has interfered in his work the erosion followed by the retraction of glaciers, the cycle of water and carbon.
He transposes into his work what sensitizes him the most, namely the “great outdoors”.
