Marie Goulard is an artist from Bordeaux. Self-employed for fifteen years, she has explored many artistic fields including decorative painting on ceramics, the creation of wall frescoes, and the recycling and renovation of objects and furniture. She has been immersed in creation from a young age.
Attracted by the portrait and the elements of recovery, I explore these subjects through various techniques in painting, collage, and drawing. I particularly appreciate giving a second life to things.
This artistic path led me to the realization of paintings in micro-collages with paper. The choice of black and white eliminates certain sources of distraction and refers directly to the essence of the subject by giving it a timeless appeal and a resolutely contemporary rendering. I assemble my archive photos by patiently applying them, one by one, onto a wooden support to form mosaics of small, juxtaposed squares. My artworks have a pixelated effect and become optical illusions that represent faces or parts of the human body.
