  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Pierre Oscar Brunet's work cannot be mentioned without underlining his persistence, almost lived as a stubbornness, to make, every year for the last four years, a two-month residency in Finland in Jyväskylä. He always chooses the month of May or mid-September, a brief period of regeneration of nature and autumn sun in Scandinavia.

He saw in this an essential aspect, which today we call ecology, and which consists in working with nature or more exactly in creating an alliance and a dialogue with this materia prima. Pierre Oscar Brunet has felt the deep components of this, in connection with family resurgences. At the same time, his work is nourished by other inspirations: the poems of Thomas Tranströmer, the American philosopher William James and the practice of the filmmaker Stan Brakhage, a pioneer of experimental abstraction, whom he admires.Every year, Pierre Oscar Brunet leaves alone for a random walk through an unknown forest. Every year, Pierre Oscar Brunet goes alone for a random walk through an unknown forest. He chooses a clearing and delimits, with a cord, a square of 15 square meters.

From this site he makes his work. Dissolve Spaces is the title of the different pieces exhibited in Montrouge in the form of an installation and painted canvases, plural fragments of this quest, which are almost topographical surveys but in no way simple observations. Pierre Oscar Brunet questions different mediums: a super 8 film running in a loop, engravings of soil prints, a natural element taken on the spot as a memory of the place, often a lichen. He exhumes, senses and invokes an archetypal symbolism of the space shown. He is successively a filmmaker, an engraver, a serigrapher or a sculptor, assuming such a dissociation of the personality as the truth of his being.

The artist adds a series of paintings from his trip to the Arctic, using mixed techniques on silkscreen with color zones. The superb variations that he proposes to us there are essentially a dialogue with a memory of the light.

This tonality of the luminous experience and its dazzling remains a constant in this artist who proposes, through his hallucinatory topographic memories, an extended reflection on representation and cinema.
