A keen observer of the details of everyday life, nature and animals, the artist purifies and transcribes his observations into delicate hybrid scenes, half-photography, half-drawing, in which each element has its own meaning. Strongly influenced by the cinema, these works are often realized in series, in diptychs or triptychs where a recurring motif is transformed and links each drawing to the others, creating a sequence, a poetic narrative.
Naturally Pierre Bourrigault chose to represent scenes of the Atlantic shores that he has been frequenting every summer for the past 30 years. From his meticulous observation during several weeks, he takes many photographs of life scenes, landscapes and atmosphere. He then selects and places these images according to the principle of the storyboard by purifying to the maximum in order to arrive at a very fine framework of the structuring elements of the image. He then works with digital watercolor on the volumes and patterns, and prints on a Washi paper that he helps to manufacture in an entirely artisanal way in Veneto.
The Rivages were conceived by series, in diptych or triptych. A recurring motif is transformed and links each drawing to the others, creating a sequence, a poetic narrative.
Originally from Brittany, Pierre Bourrigault attended the Studio Berçot, a fashion school in Paris. He now devotes himself to illustration and 2D animation.
