Bernard Varvat exhibits forty years of sculpture in Bouc-Bel-Air

For his forty years of passion, Bernard Varvat, marble sculptor based in Bouc-Bel-Air for many years, will present forty works reflecting his artistic evolution. But be careful, even if Bernard is twice forty, this retrospective is not an end but a stage: “I am always driven by the desire to create. I still have a lot to express with my great companion, marble. “, he confides.

If the artist began to work on black marble from Belgium, of which he best values ​​the way in which it catches the light, for several years, he has opened up to colored marbles from Brazil, Egypt, Portugal , unearthed by its importer, very open to his requests, or even from Caunes-Minervois (11) where he uses the very intense veined red. “I’m looking for parallelepiped blocks that don’t inspire me with anything other than their color. I start from my imagination in order to translate it into the block of marble“, indicates Bernard Varvat before adding: “I need to create in three dimensions. I try to be imaginative in the design and rigorous in the production. I work directly on the marble block with different shaped tools, made of forged steel or tungsten carbide. Then I use rasps for sanding and polishing.”
