Starting from January 27, 2023, discover “Plus haut tremble,” a solo exhibition by Marine Wallon.
Graduated from the Beaux-Arts of Paris in 2009, her work has been showcased in solo and group exhibitions in Saint-Paul-de-Vence (Galerie Catherine Issert), London (Stoppenbach & Delestre), Paris (Under Construction), several art centers, and museums (Le Point Commun – contemporary art space in Annecy, Kunstwerk Carlhütte in Büdelsdorf, MAC VAL – Museum of Contemporary Art of Val-de-Marne in Vitry-sur-Seine). Her work is also part of several public and private collections, including the Collection of the Louvre Museum – Chalcography, Fondation Colas, Ville de Vitry-sur-Seine – MAC VAL deposit, Artothèque d’Annecy, and Fonds Moly-Sabata.
In 2022, Marine Wallon was awarded the 11th Jean-François Prat Prize, presided over by Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo. She received the Fondation Colas Prize in 2020, the Moly-Sabata Prize at the 64th Salon de Montrouge in 2019, the 3rd Antoine Marin Prize in 2018, the International Novembre à Vitry Painting Prize in 2017, the Print and Paper SMFA Boston Prize, as well as a Collin-Lefrancq scholarship that allowed her to study at SMFA Boston in 2008.
Recently, she created a color engraving for the Chalcography, commissioned by the Louvre Museum and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais.
“Marine Wallon’s canvases are all celebrations of those leaps of the eye and mind that constitute the mystery of aesthetic emotion, this ‘procreation of the painting’ to which the artist invites spectators.”
