Gérard Dutreix


Former graphic designer, Gérard Dutreix creates stunning geometric black and white portraits that each is like a love story to him.

Gérard Dutreix is a French contemporary painter. Self taught artist Dutreix started painting after a career as a graphic designer. Gérard Dutreix paints with acrylics and uses flat tints to create his portrait; the artist eventually replaced the colors by black and white in his canvases depicting mostly women. Each of his painting starts with preparatory work, followed by transformations and insertions, to modify and “geometrize” the faces to create a brand new image. Drawing is still at the heart of the painting and given the time spent with each and every portrait painting becomes an encounter, a love story, a shared path.

Gérard Dutreix paintings can be exclusively found at the gallery.
