The Flesh of Matter, the Light of Colours

by on Thursday, 20 October 2011 Comments

Born in 1944 in Orléans (France), Bernard Foucher is a contemporary artist, painter, sculptor and stained-glass windows maker. He illustrates also modern poets (Bernard Noël, Michel Lagrange, Hélène Cadou) in fine arts books gathered in a collection called Alphabet existentiel.

In this video are mixed together animations with music on several of his paintings as well as fragments of interview. Bernard Foucher tells us how he works, how he preserves his artistic freedom and how he wants to respect the differences between paintings and sculptures. He also suggests us the genuine possibility of a conciliation between life and artistic creation.

I'm a French Jesuit; I work for a Ignatian spirituality website and help students to write French in an association run by the society in Saint-Denis. It's a very pleasant job where I get to meet many friendly and dynamic people from Asia, particularly from Taiwan.

我是一位法國耶穌會士,目前為依納爵靈修會(Ignatian Spirituality)工作,並在聖丹尼斯社團( the Society in Saint-Denis)所辦的機構幫忙教導學生學習法文。這是一個很棒的工作,因為可以遇到許多來自亞洲友善又有活力的人,特別是台灣的朋友。
