Oil on Canvas
Pierre Cherbit has been painting for over forty years. His painting is primarily the expression of a feeling, without a physical medium : he uses neither photos, or model, or background. It is pure inspiration which guides him through the use of the noblest painting materials, alternating the arrangement of the different pictorial techniques, allowing him to use color and light in a unique manner.
His painting has exploded. It shows us a variation of colors, an amazing depth, which changes dramatically a certain perception of the so-called flat surface.
His touch, his intuition of light, his depth, his colors were rewarded at the Senate by the medal of progress delivered by the Société d'Encouragement au Progrès (founded in 1896), class Yvon Gattaz 2003 under the patronage of Mister Christian Poncelet, President of Senate.
