Coming from the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Bertrand Peyrot works
in the Paris region. Each of his works is an evolving pictorial
entity, with a metal plate subject to degradation over time.
The background and the shape are one.
Each plate is not instantaneously frozen on the sheet but
evolves like an organic entity in perpetual movement, in a
biological rhythm in perfect phase with that of the human
Bertrand Peyrot gives new meaning to time in its evolutionary and irreversible aspect.
He works with and on form. Form that takes shape on the
steel plate due to corrosion. Let the drawing appear by itself.
The work is no longer the result of the artist’s hand, but results from the alteration of the steel plate by a natural chemical reaction.
Bertrand thus restores human mortality. Each of its sheets,
by biodegrading, invites us to reflect on the ephemeral of our
lives and on the importance of time.
