Ink Drawings by Marion Beaupère
In 2005, Beaupère began her artistic creation making geometric and surreal ink drawings noted for their unusual meticulousness. Her images combine the obsessive precision and control of the line with themes such as the body, sex, vanity, time, death instinct and life. The artist expresses the unconscious mind by automatic writing while creates a disenchanted poetry, a reflection of human anguish.
Over the years, Marion Beaupère expanded her interest in painting, sculpture, photography and installation. In her paintings, Marion investigates the limits of the body, from psyche to entrails, focusing on creation and its role in the vital process by recurring themes of the skin, emaciation and open bite.
Her first series of works titled Rotring is considered by the artist as a protective covering and life-saving freedom. Mixing surrealism and geometrical constellations, Beaupere questions the place of the body in real and unreal space. For her, life, creation and death are fragments of the same mechanism.
