Bertrand de Miollis



"No one can

return home

without a great treasure. "



It is always an attentive look, if not amazed,

that we wear in paintings and drawings made by artists during their travels. These works could almost constitute a genre in their own right. However, this would certainly be compartmentalizing without reason a relationship to the world made up of multiple inspirations, which precisely crosses borders through the exercise of a great freedom of creation.

Through the CircumNavigations exhibition ! Bertrand de Miollis

offers us that same freedom.

Circumnavigation is a geographical concept, dear to the daring characters who since Antiquity have wanted to circumscribe known and unknown lands. Now, says the poet, to discover the world is to discover oneself.

For Bertrand de Miollis , the paintings thus have a “cartographic” value. They mark the place which carries the thought and the full feeling of the artist. By naming the exhibition presented today CircumNavigations! , we chose the prism of movement and

inner vitality, two constitutive states

of the artist's original personality.


Mobile or motionless traveler, Bertrand de Miollis has the art of summoning our imagination through the force of his paintings, like windows open to the world he perceives: that of a pulsating color. Under his brushes the world sings by a use of vitamins - almost greedy - of color, the universe of the intimate as that of the great horizons is "re-enchanted" in the light of the marvelous and the childhood.

Dots, quick or light touches, slow and deep brushstrokes trace as many signals and wakes, as many colored vibrations. A visual and invigorating echo of the radiance of things, Bertrand de Miollis' work beats like a child's heart.

His relationship to the world and the universality of his subject are naturally united by the metaphorical function of painting.

An intimate, poetic and mysterious journey in which things, landscapes and people merge.
An imaginary place where the distinct and the indistinct intermingle.

Bertrand de Miollis's painting teaches us that the mystery can be represented by the simple luminous presence of things, here is the lyricism and the genius of the painter, the song of the soul of the artist.
