Bernard Sannier has spent 50 years perfecting his art. 50 years of criticism, of breaking traditional boundaries and of imposing his style and of battling convention.
Based in the Averyon region of France Sannier’s latest works depict a world of creative innocence. His childlike characters, interwoven with ‘signs’ and symbols and defined in some sense by the written phrases that accompany them, are symbols of a life without filter, a freedom that is lost in adulthood and a rebuttal of everything that is politically correct. Using the child, Sannier is able to free himself of the censorship assigned to adulthood and the expectation to behave correctly.
Aside from his latest collection, Sannier is a prolific artist who experiments in many different form and genres: oil paintings, drawings, frescoes, wood and marble. Sannier pours his enthusiasm and experience into each piece of art. His work has been exhibited extensively in galleries and private exhibitions across France.
