Bernard Garo, a Swiss artist, views his own paintings not just as an image, but as a form of energy, a rhythm. His materiality seeks to explore the history of humanity and our identity. Nature is at the heart of his artistic odyssey, this is evident in his use of colors and materials, using mainly natural materials such as sand, marble powder, bitumen, and lacquer. Our perpetually changing environment and the impact we have on it fascinates the artist, celebrating the power of nature and all at once revealing our vulnerability as people. Garo is a polymorphic artist who experiments in many fields, such as performance, installation, and photography.
Paintings by Bernard Garo are on view (by appointment) at Le Petit Palais, Fairmont Le Montreux Palace
