MARIANNE RF or COVID: LACK OF SHOWS

Material: oil on Canvas
Size: 53 x 65 cm

Discovering with the Covid pandemic a life of isolation and new constraints, I made a list of all these pleasures taken for granted, lost. And I thought: when our joys are gone, are we still alive? Here, the allegory of the French Republic is damaged with the closing of the theaters and the loss of live shows.

I was born in 1984, in Paris. As far as I can remember, I have always drawn, painted quite regularly. My mother also talked to me a lot about art, introduced me to major artists, gave me a taste for exhibitions. However, after my degree, no art school, but 16 years of teaching with unforgettable memories. And in February 2021, my partner, my first supporter, offered me to stop teaching and devote myself to my art. Now, I'm keen to launch my new career as an artist painter.
