'Nature, and what surrounds us in general, offers us a fabulous abstract spectacle, alive and in motion. I see shapes, lines, curves, shadows, links and interactions that inspire me many stories that I like to transcribe on canvas.'

About


Marie is a self-taught abstract artist, born in 1989, who lives and works in the countryside of Lille, France. Creative since childhood, she first studied art design, then computer graphics, communication and marketing. After having exercised various professions, she decided in 2019 to return to her first love, painting. Full-time artist for 4 years, she creates minimalist and organic works in which the flat colors subtly rub shoulders with the relief of the material.

In her work, she mixes geometry with a certain form of poetry by giving life to simple shapes inspired by her environment or influenced by the present moment. She thus creates forms that are more or less abstract and more or less evocative depending on each person's perception. She does not seek to represent something but to let her spirit be free on paper. Only then does she realize the form her forms take. This work on paper gradually became a form of preparatory work by being re-interpreted on canvas.

Her favorite medium is acrylic paint to which she gives volume by exploring different ways such as collage, sand or cotton thread. This gives life to her work, where the light takes all its power. 

In her recent work on canvas, Marie abandons the strict lines created with adhesive tape in favor of simple, rounded and soothing shapes inspired by her works on paper.
