This is part of the Fragmentation series, which consists of abstract paintings playing with notions of deconstruction and movement. Can something broken remain whole? With Fragmentation, lines connect, disconnect and reconnect over the multilayered surface, intertwining strokes through a dynamic rhythm of hues.  With a palette that limits spatial recession, each fragment appears to be almost floating on the surface, moved by an unknown current, ready to be reconstructed – or deconstructed anew – through the act of looking.

This painting is done on a thin layer of wood mounted on thick pine wood frame. The edge is 1.625 inch deep, including the top layer of wood. The painting is varnished for a smooth and glossy finish. The edges have been sanded and varnished as well, for a polished contemporary look bringing forward the natural color and grain of the wood. This artwork is wired to hang.

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.
