"How to work without a model during containment? I took a greyish-green, white-spotted Arudy stone that had been waiting for me since the summer. Doing a self-portrait is not frequent for me. It's a strange exercise. Since I almost never look at myself in a mirror, I have an image of my physique that is more in line with the idea I have of myself in the past. When I sculpt myself, I observe myself in the mirror, in the photos I take of myself in profile and from three quarters, and I discover a different man. My hands insist on describing on the marble the features of the one I remember, when my tendency to study my reflection in the mirror was more marked. The mixture is disturbing for me. I see myself concentrated, with an eye expression that is a little absent. The form. We still don't know what's important about form. There are theories that suggest that life depends on form. It is through form that our essence expresses itself."

Gérard Lartigue seeks Rodin’s truth, the truth which enables beauty to be manifested. To represent the human face and body, one must explore the volumes under the skin, muscle tension and bone structure.

Three decades immortalising the beauty of the body

Gérard Lartigue's work alternates between the forces of Eros (eroticism) and Thanatos (death). The artist believes firmly in the ability of forms and material to recreate life. Starting out as a painter, he has been a full-time artist for thirty years.

Lartique’s work is no longer a simple representation, it is now a living artwork. He considers himself to be a citizen of the world and a witness of our era, living in the present moment, free from his past. He spent his childhood and teenage years on another continent, America.

Hand gestures as a universal language, journey after journey

Later, Gérard Lartigue travelled primarily in Europe. Fluent in three languages, he managed to make himself understood almost everywhere he went, primarily using his hands. He explores human nature, going beyond the filters of culture, nation, social positions, profession, etc., and has become a highly skilled portrait artist. Drawing has always been the foundation of his art.

Lartigue works with different materials, from stone to marble, clay, plaster and bronze. He goes beyond figurative presence, exploring the deeper layers that affect time, the intangible, and the connection between matter and spirit.

In 2017, the renowned French writer Michel Houllebecq said, "Your bust of me is impressive. The earthy material has extreme expressive power."

"Artworks created from a vision that looks deep into the human being. From inert matter come expressive, lively faces." Painter and art critic Ksenia Milicevic.
