Bernard Marie Collet makes a joyful painting, in love with life. Painting is for him a way to appropriate a fragment of reality and make it possible for him to vibrate flat and otherwise on the limited surface of the canvas. Between figuration and abstraction he tries to transmit his emotion by playing with shapes, lights and colours to approach a purely plastic form of harmony. "We can look at a landscape, a face, a sky as a sum of coloured shapes with no other meaning than those of their own vibrations, their respective "weights", their location on the map. My painting is a representation of reality at the same time as a simple presentation of an abstract coloured plan. Abstraction and figuration are like my two painter’s legs. And limping is inevitable, I sometimes rely more on one leg than the other. But for me, it is a source of diversity, adventure, renewal and even discovery. In recent years he has created works inspired by the landscapes and vegetation of the Tropics.

Bernard Marie Collet is a French painter living and working in Paris. He followed a classical education at the Julian Academy and the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

In the 60s he frequented the painters of the Salon de Mai, Alfred Manessier, Franz Krajberg, Edouard Pignon... and in particular ORAZI, painter of the Nouvelle École de Paris of which he was the assistant in his workshop in Montparnasse.
