Born in 1982, Thomas Tronel-Gauthier develops a protean practice of sculpture calling in turn the object, installation, painting, photography and video.

His work questions the origin of things and shapes, questions the materials and their fate, the links between man and nature, while looking at the landscape and the experience of travel. He thus proposes a sensitive and empirical approach to what science calls "morphogenesis" and challenges the perennial nature of the most ephemeral moments of our world.

Exhibited at the "Salon de Montrouge" in 2010, winner in 2011 of the "Support for the development of an artistic research" awarded by the French National Center of Visual Arts, he leaves for an Artistic Residency at the Paul Gauguin Cultural Center in 2012 on the Marquesan island of Hiva Oa (French Polynesia). This atypical island experience continues to feed his thoughts and imagination.

Winner of the Salomon Foundation Residency Award in 2016, he sets up his studio in New York for a six-month residency in ISCP - International Studio & Curatorial Program.
His recent solo exhibitions include: The World is an Island – Gallery 22,48 m², Paris (2017) / Surrounded by Water – curated by the Salomon Foundation, L'Abbaye, Annecy (2017) / Le Temps d'un sillage - Bullukian Foundation, Lyon / Sculpture Prize 2016 of the Olive Tree Foundation / FIAC OFFICIELLE - Cité de la Mode et du Design (2015) / Parcours Saint-Germain 2015 at Heschung / An Echo A Stone - Gallery My Monkey, Nancy (2015) / Ce que j'ai vu n'existe plus (What I saw no longer exists) - galerie 22,48m², Paris (2015).
