Marine Wallon French, b. 1985


Marine Wallon treats colours in landscapes. Each shade that she scrupulously stretches on the surface of the canvas participates in a panoramic expansion. With firmness, she configures uneven grounds with exquisite crusts. Ardour directs her tightrope walking gestures, in readjustment, always on the edge. Her tectonic is chromatic.-- Joel Riff, Art writer, curator, and artistic director of Moly Sabata / Albert Gleizes Foundation

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.


Marine’s latest work is currently being exhibited in a solo show Plus Haut Tremble at the Centre d'Art Contemporain / Passages, Troyes. On view until 1st April 2023.
