His first solo show was in Strasbourg in 2014. Since then, his work has been exhibited in galleries and art centers in France and United States. Highlighted by the November International Painting Prize exhibitions in Vitry in 2016 and then that of the Icart Prize 2017, Bruno Gadenne is the winner of the Théophile Schuler Prize in 2018. In 2019, after being the guest of honor at the Salon des Artistes de Massy, he had his first solo show in the United States, at the agnès b. Gallery in the New York City.

Inspired by his travels around the world, Gadenne's work relates to landscape and nature. Using oil as a medium, he creates a strangeness by diverting some of the landscape features. He tries to create tension by playing with the rendering of light and the deepness of transparent layers, establishing a double play between wonder and an uncanny feeling. His ambitious intention is to capture the viewer's attention, to invite the spectator to contemplate while being on the alert of an underlying menace hiding in tranquility
