Wallon Marine

Born in 1985 in Paris, Marine Wallon works and lives in Paris and Pantin. She is graduated from the MFA School of the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston and from l'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Images deformed of real objects or landscapes, collected images, optical phenomena, Marine Wallon's works explore the pictorial medium through various supports: painting, brick, aluminum, paper, etc. The use of these techniques and diverse materials questions the link of the paint in the image and in the fragment. Marine Wallon summons amply references inherent to the cinema, to the literature and to the photography. It is by questioning the memory of images that she explores painting in the deepest part of its architecture, in the structural sense: montage, time, space.
Marianne Derrien, extracts from « Le mirage des images »


In her creation protocol, Marine Wallon intercepts an image in a video stream, a document used to construct her painting. She thus seizes the right moment, when the characters viewed from the back or represented in receding profile, are dispossessed of the main action. The extended shadow of a golfer's club is mingled with summer light. These images seem to exist at the edge of their own history, in a flutter. These dreams of the real, see at the same time mingle dexterity and let go of a complex pictorial touch where the passages of the brush are signified by the traces.
Théo-Mario Coppola, extracts from the text "cet espace sans ombre”
