Jean-Baptiste Bernadet Biography

Jean-Baptiste Bernadet is an appropriationist who works fluidly between conflicted styles- monochrome and impressionist, minimalist and gestural- a painter whose kaleidoscopic canvases have found comparison with the equally elusive language of music. Bernadet's accumulated brushwork hovers between abstraction and figuration. Using a small brush the artist builds up a nebulous, shifting surface that equally displaces the viewer and the subject. This insistence on uncertainty is reflected in the artist's own meditations. “I don’t feel any certainty about life, so I want my work to reflect that uncertainty,” says Bernadet. “I 
will never be the kind of artist who does one thing.”
