About

The Naked Truth (Expressionist Gestural Portrait of Female Figure, Custom Frame) by Marion Vinot Modern Expressionist portrait painting in gold tinted frame oil on paper, 18 x 14 inches, 23 x 17 inches framed Hailed for her use of color and light in figurative paintings that often depict the more tender side of humanity (ie. paintings of mother with child, children playing, tea time with family), the bohemian artist born in Paris, France paints a delightfully whimsical portrait of a female figure with oil paint on paper. The delicate brushstrokes that form the left brow and bridge of the nose evokes a form found in portraits by Matisse or Picasso. This piece is framed with an 8 ply mat and stained gold wooden frame. 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 2016 exhibit will focus on two ‘families’ of work from different periods of the artist’s career and will include works in pastel and oil on canvas and paper.
