This week’s artist: Marie Lenclos
We welcome Marie Lenclos to takeover the walls and windows of Studio 73. We found out a little bit more about Marie and her journey:
What is your background? I was born in Paris in the early 70s. My colour designer dad literally brought colour to my life. He led by example, drawing and painting in his free time throughout my childhood (and, at 82 years old, still does every day). He progressively and consistently made me aware of my surroundings, the light changes on buildings, the beauty of a simple apple and the joy that colour can bring.
Who or what is your inspiration? I’m inspired by the way the light falls on things, creating lines and colours, shades and contrasts. Since becoming a filmmaker in the late 90s and later on as a painter, I walk around with my eyes wide open all the time, ready to catch that ‘moment of seeing’ when a street, railway bridge, set of buildings or a tree hit me with their presence and beauty.
