Montpellier is without doubt a city full of culture and enterprise. One of the many ways to benefit from what the city gives is to trawl around the art galleries that exist there, all of them within spitting distance of Place de la Comedie. There are five smallish and exciting galleries, which individually have much to offer, each exhibiting a diversity of work that one can easily relate to and be inspired by.
The galleries promote a number of their own artists all with individual and interesting styles and the artists are from all over Europe.. It would be too easy to write down a list of the artists who are exhibiting but more often than not when work is displayed as a group one artist usually stands out or has a special individual appeal. Even then it may be just one piece of work which signals a special message that one may relate to.
ROBERT COMBAS, who has work on display at Galerie Helene Trintignan, 21, rue Saint-Guilhem, is such an artist. There is obviously an intelligence bubbling away in his work and one soon realises that in his head as there is more than what immediately appears on the canvas.
One cannot easily pass or ignore this man’s work as the overall impact takes hold and roots you to the spot forcing you to soak up the images on a number of levels.. One stands and absorbs and that in itself is a major triumph for any artist to achieve from a spectator..
Each of the five galleries have their individual presentations and style which is both interesting and varied. In addition, without exception. the patrons were helpful, informative and very friendly.
