I was frustrated that the pandemic prevented me from flying to New York so I painted the city from a photo I took on my last trip and I had the fantasy to copy a Venus by Titian and represent her confined in New York to make a link between Europe and America, between past and present...
Marbleu engraves, paints and sculpts magical moments that transcend silence, stillness and death. Her work wears a thousand faces. Plaster, bronze, wire, assemblages of old letters and forgotten objects "just happened upon", everything is a pretext for her homage to life and its tumultuous, playful, tattered and torn fantasies.
