was born in 1952 in the south-west of France in a toy shop.
After more than 20 years spent as a painter, and also a sculptor of
recovered objects, Pras conceived in 1997, an astonishing form of
expression, using photography as a basis for the creation of what
amounts to a form of installation art.
work does not illustrate the painter’s art but the way the eye
views an object.
In fact, brush and paint are replaced by the object itself.
he creates a picture in relief and gives birth to portraits by randomly
accumulating common objects.
Pras sets up his camera at a well-defined angle so that the objects
themselves merge and a portrait appears from this bric-à-brac
- the work of art is accomplished !
The photograph is the only remaining trace of this ephemeral work.
