Marion Vinot
Ancient Memory (Abstracted Painting of Whimsical Feminine Portraiture in Gold)

2005

About

24 x 18 inches, 32.5 x 26.5 inches framed with 8 ply off-white mat and gold painted wood frame oil on paper 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. This painting on paper subtly incorporates the facial features of various whimsical female figures with details of bright poppy red flowers in the corner. This piece is framed with an 8 ply warm white mat and thin profile golden frame.
