Transcender une émotion, rendre hommage, dénoncer une réalité, tendre vers un mouvement…

Bonjour 2012

Oui, je défends toujours et encore l’art figuratif, mais surtout le travail d’artistes contemporains dont les propositions sont claires et respectueuses des sujets et des thèmes abordés.

Transcender une émotion, rendre hommage, dénoncer une réalité, tendre vers un mouvement, imaginer une suspension, suggérer un dialogue, partager avec humour, traiter avec poésie, parfois aussi le sujet n’est que prétexte. Les artistes présents dans la galerie travaillent avec d’autres galeries en France ou à l’étranger.

Qu’ils soient voyageurs ou rêveurs, leur imagination honore une véritable maîtrise de diverses techniques. Ils sont en recherches constantes, explorateurs, exploratrices de propositions, mais aussi de matière et de matériaux vers la conception d’œuvres originales.

Par choix personnel, par mon regard sur la vie et sur la mort, je me réjouis lorsqu’une personne qui entre dans la galerie, en sort enrichie, nourrie, intriguée, différente tout simplement avec dans son panier suffisamment d’images et de parfums à partager à son tour dans d’autres ailleurs. Je suis ravie lorsqu’une personne qui entre dans la galerie est heureuse de retrouver un artiste repéré et apprécié dans une autre ville, ou encore lorsqu’une personne peut découvrir et éventuellement suivre l’évolution du travail de l’un ou l’autre des artistes permanents de la galerie.

Engagé, solitaire et exigent, lorsque la certitude dort sous le doute, chacun dans son univers personnel de création, garde un regard à la fois posé et confiant sur son travail.

Déjà de nombreux amateurs expriment une véritable fidélité et reviennent avec enthousiasme à la recherche d’un coup de cœur.

Le fait d’être à l’écoute d’artistes, d’être dans l’échange et le partage d’émotions est une motivation quotidienne et un véritable bonheur.

Committed to living artists for more than 25 years, Bénédicte Giniaux started in the Oise and Paris regions before moving to Bergerac, Dordogne, where she opened her own art gallery in 2011.
In the heart of the historic centre of this charming city, the gallery presents the work of twenty permanent artists. The figurative art, which is here always customised and stylised, remains a priority, through various themes (the world of humans and animals, journeys, nudes, everyday life scenes and still-life paintings). Numerous abstract artworks are also on display.
In this art gallery, poetry, tenderness, humour and life stories are predominant. The artworks are signed by professional artists deeply committed to their work. Some of them even have a solid reputation abroad.
From small to large formats, the artworks are made of bronze, terra cotta, raku, iron, Corten steel, stainless steel, wood, glass fusion, etching, engraving, drawing, collage, watercolour, pastel, acrylic paint, oil paint, photography…

The gallery is run with passion by Bénédicte Giniaux. All her energy is dedicated to various artists, from France and abroad, with whom she chose to work and on long-term partnerships. They work hands-in-hands with a mutual confidence.
Throughout the year, various events give the gallery its tempo: solo or collective exhibitions, in situ with the permanent artists of the gallery, as well as outdoor exhibitions in partnership with important places, such as this summer exhibition at the Château des Vigiers.

“Over the past nine years, the Bénédicte Giniaux art gallery has been able to win over and retain an audience of amateurs and collectors from all over the region and passing through the Dordogne. The quality of the selected artworks, as well as the friendliness of the reception, undoubtedly make it one of the most important art galleries in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.” Florence Peyron

“I have always been working with artists from whom the sensibility and the creative techniques passionate me. I appreciate their investment, their commitment, their artistic search as well as the way they look at their own work. Some of them are present since the beginning of my activities, and when new artists fit in the gallery, my selection criterion are mainly linked with their professional background and I look for long-term partnerships.
All the sculptures and all the paintings are one-offs. Regarding the bronze sculptures, casted in limited edition and numbered, each one of them is called “Épreuve originale”. I never put on display artworks made from resin, neither for indoor nor outdoor.
All the artworks are technically mastered, and I always deliver a certificate of authenticity, alongside a text of introduction or a catalogue about the artist.”
