An exhibition to celebrate nature

1 July 2019 - 9h01

The Monaco Modern’Art gallery, in collaboration with the Art & Environment association, is presenting Philippe Pastor’s exhibition Terre & Mere until July 26th. All accompanied by previously unseen sculptures of Arbres Brûlés. Sensitive pieces, in homage to nature, which also denounce current environmental problems.

Paintings to illustrate the destruction of ecosystems and the role of man in society.  A personal vision of Philippe Pastor, local artist committed to the protection of the planet and creator of these abstract compositions illustrating natural chaos, storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, the unleashing of elements. Linked with these large canvases, stand the sentinel figures of another wounded nature, Arbres Brûlés. This series of sculptures, initiated in 2003 following the devastating fires of the Massif des Maures, today echoes the tragedy of 2018 in California where fires have drawn up a deadly toll.

An abstract creative technique

Through his work, Philippe Pastor has developed a personal vision of nature, reflecting man’s interactions with the planet. Thus, the artist uses living materials and transforms them by making time and his immediate environment an ally. He mixes soil, pigments, minerals and plants of all kinds. The key elements in his works highlight his creative process, during which the physical act of painting is privileged by dripping or projecting color on the canvases.
