Dévisager la Figure d'un peintre

Bernard GAUBE, painter, lives in Brussels. For this exhibition, Bernard Gaube introduces us to a series of “Figures of a painter”. A character, standing and full face and, on the left of the picture : a tree ; on the right shoulder of the character : a parrot. Figure of a lost paradise ? Expression of a nostalgia of the “absolute” to which this picture would give a name ? Opening, Thursday October 11, 2012
12 October - 17 November 2012
 

Bernard GAUBE (1952), born in Kinsantu, Congo, lives and works in Brussels.
He devotes himself to ceramics between 1972 and 1980. From 1979 onwards, his main activity has become painting, which he has been continuously practising from then on, unflaggingly seaking the expression of his being. From 1995 to 2001, he lectured at the International Summer Academy of Libramont. Then, he was a lecturer at the Higher School of Plastic and Visual Arts in Mons. He exhibited in Liege, Brussels, Oostende, Namur, Fribourg, Mons, Gand… but also in Rotterdam, Luxembourg, Montreal, Cologne…
