His Creations
Art is made by two, I propose and you dispose, I started, it is up to you to perfect the meaning and emotion that will accompany the life of the work. Things are not as inert as we think.

The film
This film, made on the occasion of Gilbert Portanier's 90th birthday, is intended to show the artist at work, capturing moments of inspiration, creation, his thoughts and his choices. Here are some selected extracts
All human beings have asked themselves big questions. Artists are content to dream up the answers.
We start out confused, but the fingertips have the perfect knowledge which makes sense and has a purpose.
The hand is much freer than the head which is constrained by knowledge. The hand always remains free.
Writing is something that cannot be replaced. Men make decisions when writing, writing is a fingerprint.
