A Wink from a Painter
“One day, a young girl agreed to pose for me while holding her cat in her arms. I noticed that they both had the same feline gaze, the same seriousness about them and shared great complicity. Yeux de chat, my first human/animal duo was born at the moment the animal and the model, in accord, turned towards my camera. Clic!” Here is a creation that overlaps the arbitrary boundaries of the conscious and the unconscious. Except the artist’s sources emanate from a privileged exchange with the animal kingdom. To be discovered!

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.
