Bronze made with lost wax. Modeling in clay then elastomer casting by the artist. The wax was entrusted to the foundry Abel Marta (Tivernon Foundry). Originally from the Susse Foundry, Abel Marta is inimitable in the transparent patina of a deep, shiny brown that recalls the reflections of water. The sculpture evokes the common points between water and human beings (the face of serenity and that of anguish, the sinuous course of water and human life).

In the part of the serene face is written "His face", and in the other is engraved "this is life".

BARBIZON (77), FRANCE

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.
