After studying fashion design in Barcelona, Berta Sesé, a Catalan artist, moved to Paris in 2002. She worked as a fashion designer and stylist for 12 years. Self-taught in photography, she studied Fine Arts with the Italian artist Alberto Cont in Paris, and since 2014 she has devoted herself entirely to it.
Represented in Japan by Gallery IND, near Osaka, she has been presenting a solo exhibition there every year since 2016.
The infinitely large and the infinitely small are part of the basis of Berta Sesé's work, she is interested in the hermetic principle of correspondence. Also inspired by the Japanese aesthetic and spiritual concept wabi-sabi, which consists of seeing beauty in imperfect, humble or impermanent things.
Her work alternates between painting and photography, and is an invitation to rediscover our environment, based on the freedom of spirit to appreciate the magic of our surroundings. Her poetic and pictorial universe is committed to nature, she is concerned about the uprooting of human beings from nature and our impact on the planet.
Her photographic work is based on the observation and perception of our daily habitat, Berta interprets priceless details, and shows us another profile of the real world concretized at a different scale.
Through a macro lens, the artist identifies the subject in a very intimate dimension, like a scientific fractal approach to our environment and its projections. The image is filled with emotion and the result is an abstraction of reality transformed into another element.
