Collective exhibition : Marion Bataillard ; Marius Pons de Vincent ; Maximilien Pellet
Preview on March 12 – March 13 to April 11 – 21 rue Chapon
This is not Marion Bataillard’s first exhibition at the gallery Guido Romero Pierini Michael Timsit. For this occasion, she will be displaying her work along with two fellow artists, Marius Pons de Vincent and Miximilien Pellet.
In her paintings, Marion Bataillard represents humans at their most intimate, their most revealing. She lets the viewer enter the secret of her atelier, and reveals scenes halfway between dreams and reality. The flat tints mix with hazy, asepticized decors that feel both warm and cool. We ceaselessly cross thresholds towards what seems to be a wholly different world, where figurative realism and the fantastic are one and the same.
Marius Pons de Vincent
Marius Pons de Vincent depicts nudity at its most beautiful and absurd. Basing his work on photographed models as well as on himself, playing with artificial colors that contrast sharply with natural backgrounds, with nudity that he distorts into “paper planes”. His grotesque figures, his clumsy naturists attempting to find freedom through nudity, Marius Pons de Vincent embeds them in identifiable backgrounds. He breaks away from realism and photographs, in order to offer his own vision of the world and of flesh. He thereby finds a balance between exhibition and concealment.
Maximilien Pellet is an allrounder. Engraving, earthenware, silkscreen printing, frescos : he uses various methods in order to revisit traditional themes, legends, and History. His paintings made from coatings or ceramics allow him to look at those themes not only from an artist’s point of view, but also a craftsman point of view. As for painting, Maximilien Pellet uses ink, watercolors… And draws smooth, sometimes geometric lines, in an almost art brut fashion. The imagination is enthused by the materials, with the use of mosaics and roughcast render.
The collective exhibition of those three artists will begin on March 13. It is one of the exhibitions presented at the gallery Guido Romero Pierini Michael Timsit, 21 rue Chapon. The venue, located in the heart of the Marais, is also available for rent during Paris Fashion Week. It is bright, full of charm, and has a great surface area of 130 sqm illuminated by a front window overlooking the street.
