Bernard Varvat, sculptor in Provence, carves marble and creates abstract forms: in the middle of triangles and curves, room for imagination and emotion.
“My work is centered on the search for forms and two forms are at the base of this research, the triangle and the curve, playing their participation alone or in association. The translation of my emotions results in an abstract work. Abstraction places us outside of our habits of thought; we cannot call upon our faculty of recognition; we only have to refer to our own experiences and let ourselves go to rediscover first sensations, emotions. To go further than the imitation of the forms we have in front of us, that for me is true creation.
Our capacities to perceive are much greater than we think; but we must devote attention to it and allow ourselves the freedom to look at the work as it is, to welcome what it gives us to think, according to our personal path – it is a parenthesis of truth.”
