Bogéna Gidrol, a qualified architect and art enthusiast, presents artists that are searching for the essential while constantly evolving.
Bogéna Gidrol with her new business partner Christopher Holder set out to expand the gallery in 2013, settling in a venerable old building at the foot of Saint Paul de Vence, a village long familiar to art lovers. The new gallery premises, just a stone's throw from the Maeght Foundation, offer visitors a brand new, radically contemporary light-filled space, where each work is in silent dialogue with its surroundings. The much larger premises mean the gallery is able to play host to other creative forms, such as music and literature, creating a shared space for experiencing the best that art has to offer.
Jeff Bertoncino, Carl Dahl, Franta and Monique Frydman were the first artists represented in the Bogéna Galerie. Then the family grew. New, well-known artists such as James Coignard, Michel Carlin, Sophie Rocco, or young, promising talents like Nathalie Deshairs, Bernard Abril arrived in the gallery. Contemporary masters like Manolo Valdes, Antoni Tapies as well as modern masters such as Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Juan Miro and Henri Matisse are also represented.
The works chosen conduct a dialogue among one another while taking us into their individual worlds. In this way, feeling becomes a journey of initiation, making us face up to our own destinies and bringing to the surface traces of the pain and joy that make up the story of our lives.
