Bertrand Créach

Bertrand Créac’h is a French sculptor born in 1947. He studied at l’Ecole Boulle in Paris and met on his journey the artists Étienne Martin, François Stahly and Michel Seuphor who gave him support in his plastic research. « My work participates at the same time of the plant life, the mineral, the fluids, the nature and its rhythms ». In wood, stone or bronze, his sculptures are sensitive and sensory refuges, a grouping of shapes carved into the material revealing an extreme strength. Relentlessly his work is characterized by an increase of vitality resulting from concentration, asymmetries and balance combine with height.
