© 2023 Marine Arragain

Contemporary abstract French painter. Born in 1985. Currently living in Paris after various experiences abroad such as Singapore and Iceland where she was granted a 1-year art residency.

True lover of abstract expressionists, Marine shares their idea that art is a perpetual exploration of one’s identity, a constant journey, rejuvenated time and again by the unconscious mind.

Her paintings are the reflection of a coherent set of fascinations: the expressive palette of American Moderns, and Nature, both monumental and serene. Her art is an invitation to fervour and contemplation.

With Marine, duality and opposites are but two faces of the same coin: silence responds to violence, appeasement to vertigo, quietude to chaos.
Choosing to paint with her canvases directly on the floor, using industrial tools and natural pigments, she explores the forces and movements created bythe overlapping layers of paint and the conversation between colors.

In the words of the poet Paul Eluard, Marine invites us all to “see the worldas I am, not as it is”.
