Marine Wallon French, b. 1985

Overview

Marine Wallon (b.1985 lives and works in Paris), studied at the Beaux-Arts Paris, where she graduated with an MFA before achieving a Post-Graduate

diploma with professor Philippe Cognée. In her practice, the artist captures shots of anonymous travel agencies or travelling documentaries of individuals, which she translates through paintings, rendering the uncontrolled character of nature. Addressing her work as ‘not seductive but rather turbulent and vibrant’, she invites the viewer to reflect on the elusive movement that escapes direct visibility.

She was recently awarded the Moly Sabata prize at the Salon de Montrouge 2019 and had a solo exhibition at the Point Commun, Contemporary Art Centre in Annecy in 2019. Recent group exhibitions include ‘Some of us’, Kunstwerk Carlhutte, Budelsdorf, 2019.
