When Marine Guilloy was a child, she already wanted to become a painter. Her first paintings were reproductions of the first painter she admired: Picasso. Then she set about painting the mountains in the middle of which she grew up. Her greatest pride remains a large mural fresco she had made in her room.
The beauty of nature, its scents, its soothing calm and its majesty have grabbed her since her earliest childhood. Marine Guilloy is also fascinated by Salvador Dali, both by his state of mind and by his painting, which remains remarkable. The "diary of a genius" and "Salvador Dali's secret life" were his first significant readings, and later inspired him with a taste for eccentricity and humour.
Many other painters have strongly shaped his artistic heart, but also music, travel and encounters. Some events of the past have taken her away from this vocation, and the desire for a life as an artist gradually dissipated until 2017, when the desire to paint returned in an irresistible way. After a few unsatisfactory attempts at figurative paintings, abstraction became the order of the day for Marine Guilloy. No more rules or frameworks, she could finally express herself deeply and freely!
When she paints, she mirrors herself: sometimes in love, sometimes in wonder, sometimes in rage, despair and frustration. She tries to transcribe her emotions by combining colours, textures and compositional balance. This young artist likes to explore various sensations through the interplay of transparencies, reliefs and opacity. She paints most of the time on a lying canvas, alternating between brushstrokes and paint pours according to the final expected result.
The moment of realization allows him to cultivate his patience and perseverance. She sometimes waits more than 24 hours for a coat of paint to dry. These are qualities she considers essential to developing her work. The approach not only adjusts to the constraints of space but also to those of time. The time to develop one's initial will, the time to observe and feel the emotion that emerges from the work in progress, the time to transform what is no longer appropriate and leave room for the improbable, and finally, the time of completion.
The canvas is completed when Marine Guilloy feels amazement, a feeling of completeness and exaltation, when the image the canvas reflects to her coincides with her inner self.
