'The stories and figurative scenes are a mythology of childhood, the natural world and of humanity; a wild space which speaks of a time where sentiments are profound and strong, and the fears intense.'
Marie-Elisabeth's paintings conjure a world that is both marvellous and frightening. She combines cultures, environments and creatures in paint which evoke feelings of innocence and tenderness tinged with foreboding.
Her work reminds us of the damage we have wrought on the world and its inhabitants. Movement, circulation and migration are central. Figuration and abstraction mix as she renders complex narratives where we can ponder love and loss in an immeasurable landscape.
