Pierre Bonnefille is a French abstract painter and designer with a unique and poetic aesthetics. He owns the title “Maître d’art” from the French Ministry of Culture, rewarding his artistic savoir-faire. The work of this true pictural explorer is inseparable from the triptych : materials, colours and light.
The artist creates his own basic materials, textures and tools, mainly from natural compounds: minerals, metals, sediments, marble, pigments and powders of all kinds. He enjoys exploring the world for inspiration, devoting attention to the details that convey emotion. Reflections, nuances of colours and natural harmonies are found in his polychromic canvases, giving the illusion of a quiet movement changing under the effect of light. Likewise, architectural volumes of cities such as Venice, Pompeii or Kyoto influence his series and creations. The artist’s complete know-how allows him to lead large-scale projects, constantly juggling between contemporary art and interior design. He is keen on developing immersive and sensorial environments and atmospheres, such as with his Meditation Room or with the renovation of Caisse des Dépôts et Consignation, an institutional building in Paris.

Pierre Bonnefille and aurèce vettierGilles&Boissier, Paris 15 Dec 2021 - 15 Feb 2022Gilles&Boissier and the Spaceless Gallery wanted to dedicate time to show and promote French artists who propose works in which materiality and poetry are omnipresent.Read more
For this time, the Spaceless Gallery took over the Boutique Apartment to present the work of Pierre Bonnefille, “maître d’art” and painter, alongside a selection of poetic works by aurèce vettier. This artist/poet explores and merges the very manual practice and the computer aspect by realizing encrypted poems engraved on plaster and whose secret is held by the artificial intelligence of his "botanist writings". In contrast to this exploration of language, Pierre explores matter and materials.
IN(SIGHT)Leclaireur Hérold, Paris 21 May - 10 Nov 2021The Spaceless Gallery is pleased to introduce the photographic work of the American artist Lara Porzak & French painter Pierre Bonnefille at LECLAIREUR Hérold; old stables, transformed into a magnificent location designed by Armand and Martine Hadida. Béatrice Masi, curator, and founder of the Spaceless Gallery conceived this collaboration to shed new light on the work of Lara, an artist halfway between ancient and modern, who reveals her subjects with a subtle balance between shadow and light. By choosing this place of character, the Spaceless gallery underlines the importance of a dialogue between the work and the place that welcomes it and highlights the synergy that emerges from the association of two parallel worlds.Read more
Lara Porzak's photographic work is carried out using mid 19th century photographic processes. Exploring the equivocality of form, Lara captures scenes from nature with her eye of a romantic photojournalist. More than an automatic gesture, Lara masters the nuance between taking and making the photograph. Like a craftsman, she designs and produces her photographs by transposing the impression into a materialized expression. Among the 28 works selected for this collaborative exhibition, three of them stand out. Imposing and powerful, these photographs bring the viewer back to the place where Lara captured this moment, while the smallest clichés, scattered around this place to intrigue the viewer and intensify his curiosity, intervene like memories. That way they reflect the charm of the place.
Alongside the works of Lara Porzak are three works by French painter Pierre Bonnefille. Using refined powders to produce his pictorial compositions, it is the light that surrounds them that reveals the material and creates an illusion specific to each of the spaces in which they are exhibited. Both artists find their inspiration in nature. Lara uses photography to extract an impression while Pierre expresses the reflections of light on the water in a more abstract way.
For this collaboration, the Spaceless Gallery wanted to establish a multidimensional dialogue between the photographic work of Lara, the pictorial art of Pierre within the intimate atmosphere of LECLAIREUR. It is an experience in which art, fashion and design blend subtly to offer visitors an immersion, a suspended moment in time.
