Ode Bertrand French, b. 1930

Assistant and confidant of the great Aurelie Nemours for 35 years, Ode Bertrand's work as a painter is also based on concrete art, but on different grounds: Where Aurelie Nemours explored the plane and colour, Ode Bertrand focuses on the line, which she uses both as sign and structure to subvert the geometric figures defined around the golden ratio, the grid, the maze, the triangle. She creates a geometric choreography, where the line, sometimes full, sometimes hollow, evolves in space.
