Based on photographs taken during trips in Europe and North America, this series plays on concepts of height, motifs and perspective. With nowhere to gaze but up, a fresh, different outlook on architectural landscapes is presented. Color-wise, an intense palette of bright and vibrant hues gives a very modern and contemporary look to the piece. This particular painting is a personal interpretation of a totem poles installation at the San Diego Zoo. This piece is on gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. It comes ready 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.
