Archived unique work representative of the style of the famous French artist.

About the artist

Bernard Aubertin (Fontanay-aux-Roses, July 29, 1934 - Reutlingen, August 31, 2015) was a French artist. After having studied at the Public School of Decorating, he approaches Cubism and Futurism as a self- taught artist. In 1957 he meets Yves Klein in Montparnasse who inspires him to the creation of his famous monochrome paintings, starting the following year with his first “rouge total”. From this moment, his explorations will be focused on red, intended as fire and energy. He features the so-called Tableaux Feu (fire paintings), covering his monochrome red canvas with nails (Tableaux- Clous), wires (Tableaux Fil de Fer), matches (Parcours d’Allumettes) and other varied materials, like candles and iron nets. Through the use of red he transfers the energy of the soul on the canvas thus achieving a metaphysic understanding of painting. Spiritual existence is revealed through the art and such strength is represented by the colour. In the Sixties Aubertin introduces the element of fire into his works and, in this way, the destructive nature of fire turns into a regenerating force.
