Abstraction Artist: Anne Marchand Documentary

by Mengzhu Ge

Abstract painting can thrust us into the unknown, immersing us in the midst of liminal visual and emotional experiences, without fixed name or context. This kind of art is full of risk and unexpected reward, asking the viewer to take a fraught journey right along with the artist. Anne Marchand’s paintings transport us into virtual worlds that form themselves before our eyes.She presents visions of a reality that is alive with shifting space, moving color, and animated lines. These phenomena are embodied in the material reality of paint, along with a range of materials embedded in the work’s surface. In Marchand’s work over the past ten years, the emotional range, poetic import, and inner structures have evolved significantly. What remains consistent is this artist’s pursuit of a quality of mystery and sensuousness in ever-changing scenarios of transformation.
