"Pascal Marlin, reconstructs bodies from heterogeneous cut materials. Tracing paper, pattern paper, pieces of cloth, fragments of radiographs are the raw materials for his canvases. The artist glues them, assembles them, enhances them with science and thus offers us his own vision of beauty.
The characters with deformed bodies, as if suffering from a mysterious and merciless congenital affliction, are endowed with more than generous shapes where the bulges are kings. Female figures are similar to primitive deities of fertility. They have nothing to envy to the famous Gravetian Venus. Others look like dismembered and poorly patched dolls. Sometimes, it is necessary to look very closely to identify who owns a leg or belly in this cleverly arranged body mess. These physical bodies also reveal their inner self through the presence of radiographs and cut-out scans. There a brain, there a femur, there vertebrae create shadows. We also read in this work allusive references to Klimt for the very ornamental and refined facture, and to Picasso for the fragmentation.
The whole is very aesthetically successful, disturbing as it should be because it speaks of the difference, the fantasies, the impulses that can animate us in the face of what we distinguish first and foremost from others: our bodies."
Natalie Becker.
