Marion Tivital (France)
French artist Marion Tivital paints the “remains” of industrial development in landscapes, all the factories, warehouses, silos that literally took place in the surroundings and became part of landscapes such as huts and fences, fields and pathways. In Tivital’s works, painted in a reduced style with minimalistic forms and muted colours, these structures develop an intriguing, almost meditative quality – a reference to her introspective approach: She tries to capture and re-create emotions and sensations, memories and thoughts which she encounters when outdoors. Furthermore it is the relationship between light and shadow which she is exploring tirelessly. She says: “I appreciate the poetry of the commonplace, the motionless and the invisible. I am interested in what stands humbly in the shadows, what we do not notice. The topics that inspire me are evident in the world where you live, but you don’t notice them anymore. I love taking the time to contemplate and discover their hidden beauty.” (Text by Simone Kraft) Marion currently works and resides in Paris and will be having a solo show at GNG Gallery, Paris.
