This series explores the captivating power of color and its modulations. Playing with an extended notion of gradient, the images offer a somewhat posterized effect that brings forward the vulnerability of the paint application. The subtle – yet not invisible – transition between hues is accentuated by soft textures obtained through an additive/subtractive technique with watery pigments. Although very formal in approach, this series is also about tenderness and carefulness, here shown through soft ensembles with elusive color variations.

Getting to Know Marie-Eve

Southern California transplant Marie-Eve is heavily influenced by the region’s natural environment and beauty. She works from a studio inside her San Diego home where she enjoys looking out the window to draw inspiration from the sunlight’s effect on the landscape. Marie-Eve’s work occupies a unique space at the intersection of fine art and stylized modern design, utilizing both representational and abstracted subjects. She juxtaposes organic forms with clean planes, thick outlines, and blocks of color that delight the eye. Using limited but carefully selected color palettes, Marie-Eve joyfully articulates concepts and elements of the natural world through a clean, modernist aesthetic.
