ARTIST'S OFFICIAL BIO
OFFICIAL WEBSITE http://martinsisteron.wix.com/ma-vie-en-pastel
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary French landscape painter Marjorie Vincent (born 1971 in Lorraine, France).
Marjorie Martin-Sisteron was born in 1971 in Lorraine, France. As a teenager she returned to live in the south, where her father was born. After studying art history in Montpellier, Marjorie tended to her family and professional life, before returning to her passion: drawing.
In 2012, after several visits to museums and exhibitions to view the works of artists like Toulouse Lautrec, Van Gogh and Modigliani, Marjorie decided to utilize color in her creativity. When a friend suggested pastels, she used the internet to research the medium. Inspired by artists such as Claude Texier and Penelope Milner, she realized the innumerable possibilities of this medium, bought a box and began her artistic adventure.
Marjorie dscribes her visit to the Pastel fair in Villepinte (Aude) as a “real thunderbolt.” There she discovered the paintings of Sophie Amauger, German Aracil, Paul Dumestre, Claude Carvin and many others. Desiring to further her craft, Marjorie took an internship with Amauger then two more with Carvin. She began to test various papers, doing sub-layer testing (watercolor, pastel ... diluted), and became an avid reader of Liz Haywood Sullivan and Richard McKinley, studying journals and videos for ideas.
In 2015, encouraged by her contemporaries and some professionals, she decided to enter the France Pastellistes competition. This afforded her the opportunity to exhibit alongside pastel artists she admired, including Feytiat, Charenton le Pont, Villepinte and Balaruc.
Marjorie’s favorite painitng subjects are the Herault landscapes of the Camargue (ponds, beaches, scrubland) where she lives and where she likes to hike. She wants to convey, through her paintings, the moments of serenity and happiness that she experiences while out in nature. Influenced heavily by the colorful work of American pastelists, her artistic approach is methodical. Working from personal photos, the picture takes shape after a long work of analysis and many preparatory sketches to study the composition, values, light and format.
