About The Artwork

Sold at The Other Art Fair, London 1-4 July. Framed in a stained wood frame. A collector once wrote this about my work: "Your depiction of light is a vital part of your practice. Across all of your paintings, be they interior or exterior, urban or rural, light seems to shine across and out of the canvases". To me this is a wonderful explanation of my work. These paintings are the result of years and years of being aware of my surroundings and conscious of the way I am looking at the city around me. Some years ago I was a documentary videomaker and I got used to framing things all the time, even without a camera. I'd be walking around and suddenly see something and think: 'that would make a good shot'. Now, I see something and I think: “there’s a painting in that". The result I’m looking for is a unique stillness in the urban spaces and architecture. My paintings are like long exposure photographs, intensifying colours and removing traces of people and activity, allowing the observer to contemplate the interplay of colour, light and form in the physical environments we inhabit. Some viewers report an experience of calmness, of warmth, of serenity, whilst others feel a sense of unrest and anticipation.

Marie Lenclos is a Paris born painter living and working in South-London since 1995. Lenclos is developing a recognised body of work based on the observation of urban landscapes and buildings close to her home and studio in South London. Lenclos was a documentary video maker for around 12 years. This made her very conscious of the way she looked at the city around her. She got used to 'framing' things all the time, even without a camera. Walking around she would suddenly see something and think: 'this would make a good shot'. Since becoming a painter, she sees something and thinks: 'there is a painting in this'.  Her paintings capture a 'moment of seeing', when lines, light, colours and shapes all fall into a particular order that suddenly makes sense to her. Reality is simplified, and perspectives become her own. Her main focus is colour, which she aims to make vibrant and emotional through gradients and the use of light.
