BARBIZON (77), France
25 works

Born in 1949 in Mézières, Bernard Métranve was convinced from early childhood that he would become a visual artist and that he would follow the path of artists like Brancusi, and Moore. Very impressed by the Early Arts, he designed a sculpture based on spontaneity, purity of lines, surprising beauty and the strangeness of nature.

Many exhibitions follow the tropical countries where he successively lives: Costa Rica, Côte d'Ivoire and Colombia. In 1989, he definitively returned to France and set up his workshop in an old winery in the Loiret region. The meeting of a foundryman will decide him to favour bronze sculpture.

From 2015, he and his wife will move to Barbizon. He created his new workshop there. After a long analogical period, the current works are mainly abstract. It is an abstraction inspired by natural forms but which seeks to include architectural rhythms.
