"GOLD TO THE BONE" A DUAL EXHIBITION BY
THE ARTIST MARIE
TheArtistMarie’s work is highly technical and deeply rooted in cubism and triangulation. She uses a variety of techniques in her paintings and sculptures to cut, fold, and reconstruct recycled material such as cardboard, wood, paint, and tape into geometric shapes. These shapes are then meticulously assembled into intricate lattices and sweeping planes combining a dynamic level of complexity and intricate perspective. TheArtistMarie’s work walks the fine line of chaos, yet brings perfect moments of clarity. In TheArtistMarie’s new painting series, Vertical Horizoncities are depicted from enormous heights in a dizzying, downward, fish-eye perspective. With this new form of cityscapes, TheArtistMarie brilliantly uses the method of subtracting paint from the canvas rather than adding it. Converging lines create an imaginary metropolis that thrusts its viewers into an exhilarating free fall. These captivating works are meant to evoke an adrenaline pumping sense of vertigo.
