About

12 x 12 inches unframed oil pastel on paper Hailed for her use of light and color in her figurative pastel drawings, the bohemian French artist, Marion Vinot, spent the majority of her painting career on the island of St. Barth in the French West Indies. She was well known for her joyful and uplifting paintings and drawings of figures that touch the kinder side of humanity (ie. Mother with child, tea time with the family, etc.) This Expressionist gestural figuration uses a bright and colorful palette of tropical colors that inspired the painters of the French Nabis. Like these post-impressionist artists, Vinot strongly identifies with the philosophy that artists are the creators of a subjective art that is deeply rooted in the soul of the artist. About the artist: The most beautiful and optimistic side of humanity is at the heart of Marion Vinot’s paintings. With a concentration on the figure and its environs, her portraits are executed typically in rich pastel or oil in a romantic, yet earthy style that brings to mind the painters of French Nabis. The warm palette and pleasing expressions on her subjects’ faces offer portals by which to experience a true feeling of bliss and enchantment. Marion Vinot was born in Paris, France. Completely self taught in the skill of painting and drawing, Vinot studied literature, film and art history at the University of Texas in Austin. After bouts of living in Mexico and working in New York City as a ceramist and painter, Vinot moved to the island of Saint Barthelemy in the French West Indies. For the next ten years, the artist would experience an awakening of her conscious mind as her unique style appealed to an international crowd of vacationing collectors. Eventually, the birth of her two children prompted a move to upstate New York. Memories of sun and sand would bubble up on days spent inside during northeast snowstorms and freezing temperatures in her new home. So Marion Vinot kept painting, embracing the complexities of life to fuel her art; each painting became a safe place in which to nest her soul. People, places and tropical colors continue to fill her canvases as she yields to the evolving energy that channels through her mind and body. Artist statement: The origin of their themes and arrangements does not lie in me, but rather seems to come from elsewhere. In their becoming I sense an intimate guiding force I let myself participate with. I find that by allowing this process of co-creation to take place, the development of the art work does not only become my expression, but demonstrates an interplay between essence, self and matter.
