Subtle and poetic, Thomas Tronel-Gauthier’s work bears witness to a sensitive analysis of forms, as they arise and disappear in nature. Between observation and empiricism, the artist’s approach interferes in the anatomy of reality and delivers us the richness of a singular, almost scientific aesthetic quest.
Thomas Tronel-Gauthier’s work questions the origin of things and forms, questions materials and their future, the links between man and nature, while looking at the landscape and the experience of travel.
He thus offers a sensitive and empirical approach to what science calls “morphogenesis” and challenges the perennial nature of the most ephemeral moments in our world.
