Art in a Feminine Perspective
“Painting someone’s portrait always becomes a self-portrait of the artist who lends to it the virtues he wishes to see in the mirror.” – Patrick Deville
Softness and sensitivity, plays of light and shadows reminiscent of Renaissance masterpieces: painter Marie Montiel’s creativity is a glorious gift to us all. A body of work full of grace and poetry! A little night music for the eyes! A vision of the human experience expressed with restraint and modesty! Without sentimentality! Without artifice! Marie Montiel is one of those painters blessed with monumental culture. Here is a fresh and acute talent that de-lights us with deliciously intimate canvases that speak to the soul. To achieve this goal, Marie Montiel carefully selects her models, most often among her group of friends: actors, singers and pain- ters, like her.
