With pride we present you one of the most promising artists in our gallery, Bertrand Peyrot.
Bertrand Peyrot creates his art by painting a negative image with varnish on a metal plate. He then carefully puts water on the metal plate
and leaves the iron to oxydize. Rust forms anywhere except where he initially applied the varnish.
The process of rusting forms a part of the work and meets the content: an organic entity in perpetual motion, a biological rhythm in perfect
sync with that of humans. Bertrand Peyrot wants to restore meaning to time: its evolutionary and irreversible aspect. Each painting, in
biodegrading, invites us to reflect on the ephemeral nature of our emotions and the importance of time, in a world where we tend to live
and lose ourselves in a seemingly carefree immortality.
Bertrand Peyrot has spent two years developing his own technique, after seeing rust turn his old car into beautiful colors.
Bertrand Peyrot was one of the three French artists that we selected out of 160, during our pop-up gallery in Paris to be represented by
No Man’s Art Gallery. Since then, we have exhibited him in group exhibitions in Amsterdam and Copenhagen. He has two solo-exhibitions
lined with NMAG in 2013, again in Amsterdam and in Copenhagen and will be part of the group exhibition in Shanghai.
