After exhibiting Marine Wallon’s work in collective exhibitions in 2020 and 2021, the Catherine Issert gallery in Saint-Paul-de-Vence dedicates a solo exhibition to the artist for the first time from June 29th to August 31st, 2024.

Her paintings, rich in references to cinema and oscillating between landscapes and abstract compositions, take center stage in a unique exhibition, alongside her work on paper, representing another aspect of her artistic vigor.

From suspended moments to a surge of material, from a still image to an explosion of gestures, the visitor is confronted with a universe that is both concrete and imaginary.

Marine Wallon belongs to the new French figurative scene and ventures into assertive abstraction that evolves on crest lines.

Her painting—her preferred medium since the mid-2010s—captures suspended moments and movement, the vibrant abundance of elements.

It unfolds distant and exotic horizons with evocative titles as much as it imposes the uncompromising frontality of raw painterly matter.

It is in this incomparably controlled tension that the visitor delights, with eyes turned to the painting itself, while the freest imagination surrenders to the restless narration of enigmatic scenes.

Marine Wallon (born in 1985) lives and works in Paris. Graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2009, she initially focused on watercolor, then underwent a turning point that led her to concentrate on the use of oil painting. The artist, who has regularly participated in solo and group exhibitions in France and abroad, has seen her productions recognized by numerous awards.

In particular, she was the winner of the 11th Jean-François Prat Prize in 2022 and, in 2019, the co-winner of the Moly-Sabata Prize.

More recently, she was nominated for the 2023 Drawing Now Prize. In 2022, she was invited by the Calcographie du Louvre to create an engraving.

Her work, represented by the Catherine Issert gallery (Saint-Paul-de-Vence) and Stoppenbach & Delestre (London), is part of public and private collections (Chalcographie du Louvre, Fondation Colas, City of Vitry-sur-Seine/depot from MACVAL, Art Library of Annecy, Société Générale collection, Moly-Sabata funds).

The artist has benefited from numerous solo exhibitions in recent years, for example, at Stoppenbach & Delestre (London, 2021), at the Galerie Catherine Issert (Saint-Paul-de-Vence, 2021), or at Point Commun (Annecy, 2019).

The Galerie Catherine Issert, located in Saint-Paul-de-Vence on Route des Serres 2, will host a solo exhibition by Marine Wallon from June 29th to August 31st, 2024.
