Marzena Lavarilleux Statement

Marzena Lavrilleux
Orleans, France


Born in Lodz (Poland) in 1969, I came to France at the end of 2007 and I’m now living in Orleans. I’ve painted since 2008. Before arriving in France, I worked with a Polish artist. We made a few fashion shows in Poland (Warsaw and Lodz). Until then, my artistic sense was expressed more in fashion clothing. The ability to express emotions through painting has always fascinated me. It was something of a revelation, not of my artistic side, but my ability to express myself on a canvas. In my paintings, I want to express my emotions, which are sometimes extreme. I never prepare, in advance, for what I am going to paint; painting is a spontaneous expression of my imagination. Most of my paintings are dark for the reasons mentioned above. My paintings are subjective because I have no perception of people who will view them.
