This exhibition invites a revival of a certain baroque look at Nature and Life. A look made of extravagance, 'mise-en-scène', masks and mythology, but maybe also a certain wisdom behind the scenes...

The Artist

Added Aug 14, 2013

Marie Malherbe was born in 1975 in Nice (France), and now lives between Vienna (Austria) and Venice (Italy).
History and Art history at the Sorbonne (Paris) and Ca'Foscari University (Medieval studies, Venice, Italy).
Fine Arts education with Charles Vogt at the former ESBA (Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts) in Geneva (Switzerland), sculpture at the Lycée Henri IV and Atelier Savigny (Paris, France), painting with Eric Gallet (Arras, France) and Ilona Neuffer (Vienna, Austria), illustration with Alessandra Cimatoribus (Sarmede, Italy), woodcut and etching techniques with Nicola Sene at the Centro Internazionale della Grafica di Venezia (Venice, Italy).
Her work has been recently selected for the opening of the « Photissima » Pavillion in the framework of the 56th Venice Biennale in 2015, and for the Cathedral Jubilee installation in Treviso in 2016.

Marie Malherbe was born in Nice (France). Her fine arts education starts at the École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. She then studies sculpture in Paris, getting at the same time a bachelor in Mathematics (Pierre&Marie Curie University) and a Master’s degree in Byzantine History at the Sorbonne. In 1996 she wins a scholarship to Ca’Foscari University in Venice. In Venice, she studies woodcut and etching techniques with Nicola Sene at the Centro Internazionale della Grafica. In 2003 she sets up her own painting studio in Vienna (Austria), continuing her studies with artist and art historian Ilona Neuffer.

Her work is about beauty as a divine sign lifting up souls and thus transforming the world. Her research about interiority doesn’t exclude a certain theatricality in the form, proper to express the many dimensions in one being. She paints her enchanted world in a poetic style mixing byzantine and baroque languages.
