Bruno Gadenne

Born 1990, in Cavaillon, France. Lives and works in Paris

Travel occupies a fundamental place in the life and work of Bruno Gadenne. The forest is a space that arouses the desire to hide, to lose oneself or to venture into the unknown. Each of Bruno’s paintings speaks to the quest for nature as a place to take refuge and reenergize.

In early 2020, Bruno Gadenne extended the narrative of his series with a long trip to Central America. A hundred or so gouaches produced during his journey attest to his motivation. Back in the studio, he transcribes his recollections in large formats that reawaken his aesthetic emotions when confronted with these wild landscapes.

Photography also plays a part in his creative process. He manipulates the colors of his pictures, captured at twilight, to accentuate the strangeness of the jungle. His paintings are bathed in a light close to cinematic day-for-night. These landscapes seem similarly timeless and inspire a vision of the journey to come.

Bruno Gadenne’s paintings invite the viewer to step farther into the depths of these dense, engulfing spaces. They spur movement, attention and concentration, gradually revealing themselves after the initial experience of an entrance in colors. Bruno Gadenne celebrates the diversity of the primeval forest and the mystery that inhabits it.
