Art in a feminine perspective
To feel simultaneously sucked-in and blown-away while contemplating a work of art is undoubtedly an uncommon analogy. The breathtaking atmospheric works of Annabelle Marquis could certainly be qualified as ethereal but the sensory perception they induce is so complete, it doesn’t require further explanation.
In brilliant displays of colours and contrasts, her paintings harmoniously generate opposite qualifiers: airy while sombre and colourful, soft and forceful, tranquil and agitated. Far from being concerned with these antinomies, the artist gives free reign to her inspiration and readily follows the fl ow of her creative gesture. “I start each work by setting the composition. Once all elements are in place, the painting slowly reveals itself.”
