Bertho's shows will introduce his latest “Kitch” series of paintings that touch on the Pop art subject of paying tribute to mass produced objects. Other rare fascinating original works and hand-signed limited edition serigraphs on canvas will also be available. "We are delighted to once again offer Phillipe's many collectors the opportunity to visit with him", commented Eric Dannemann, President of Martin Lawrence Galleries. "Those who have already had the opportunity to preview these new images recognize them as must-haves for any serious 20th Century Art collection" The grand tour will also feature the recently published 135 page full color art book, Philippe Bertho, In the Mind’s Eye, featuring over 100 of his latest paintings and graphics.
A master of the trompe l’oeil style of painting, Philippe Bertho is known for his fresh variations on the theme of modern man’s daily interaction with life. Influenced by a number of important modern masters, Bertho’s paintings feature in exaggerated predicaments that mimic the complexities of modern life. His inclusion of recurring poses and props such as bubbles, circles and inner tubes is a contemporary blend of Pop Art.
Bertho, who hails from the historic and beautiful Brittany region of France, is excited to be returning to the United States where he enjoys spending time with collectors and visiting the exciting cities in which the Martin Lawrence Galleries are based.
