About the Artist:

Bernard Garo is a Swiss visual artist born in Protected content . His artistic reflection is guided by an earthly, geographical concept. Garo’s work pays homage to painting as a component of our earth by including in his canvasses entirely natural materials that he finds on cliffs as well as in volcanic craters. He thus opens his painting onto a multifaceted contemporary perception that celebrates nature, mankind and our vulnerability, as well as life, technology and science.
