Pascal Marlin


"Pascal Marlin, rebuilt bodies from heterogeneous cutting materials. Pick paper, pattern paper, pieces of fabric, fragments of radiographs are the raw materials of his canvases. The artist glues them, assembles them, enhanced them Colors with science and thus offers us his own vision of beauty. The characters with deformous bodies, as suffering from a mysterious and merciless congenital attack, are endowed with more than generous forms where the beads are kings. The female figures are similar to primitive deities of fertility. They have nothing to envy to the famous Gravettienne Venus. Others seem to be dismembered and poorly refitolated dolls. Sometimes, you have to look at it very closely in order to identify who Affects a leg or a belly in this corporeal faras, however, skilfully arranged. These physical bodies also reveal their interiority by the presence of cut -off radiographs and scanners. There a brain, there a femur, there vertebrae creates shadows. We also read in this work allusive winks to Klimt for the very ornamental and refined invoice, and to Picasso for fragmentation. The whole is very aesthetically successful, disturbing as it should because it talks about the difference, Fantasies, impulses that can animate us in the face of what we distinguish in the very first place from others: her body. "Nathalie Becker.
