About Gérard Taillandier

Artist of a great sensitivity, Gerard Taillandier invites us, through his works, to rediscover the expression of the female beauty. It fights with clay and metal in fusion to draw some from the curves which it will seek with deepest of its dreams, then the bodies are born, pure, smooth, to invade L `space.

Biography / CV of Gérard Taillandier

Born in 1954 Lives and works A Montigny in Gohelle

Taillandier Gerard a name, predestined Born in Hénin- Liétard in the Fifties, its glance of child flew over very early the matter, fire, metals, in the workshops of his/her father and his large father where fires of the forging mill burned its pupils. The aptitude for the dream, the observation of the reality, transcribed by the drawing, will guide its steps as of the 15 years age towards the places where to recover metals to assemble them in mysterious animals. Young avid pupil of curiosity, his scientific course does not prohibit to him unceasingly to model clay. It works the drawing and painting, then the sculpture and finally it goes to the meeting of the cast iron of metals where the choice, increasingly precise, goes towards bronze. If the discussion thread of its works is primarily the study of the female body, its research undertakes it: towards, the subjective one of the air lines, where the hand is tightened to taste softness of it: Audacity, Jade, Eden…. and towards, the épurement extreme one where the matter is there only to materialize the transparency and eternity.

Artist Statement of Gérard Taillandier

Fluidity of the silhouettes, lines hurled, on its sculptures with the elegant forms, the hand wants to precede the eye. In its achievements fits, transfigured, its major jubilation to work the matter and volumes for the pleasure of creating. It does not belong to any school, but it is possible to read its course among the whole of its works of a simplicity full with rigour.
