History and Art history at the Sorbonne (Paris) and Ca'Foscari University (Medieval studies, Venice, Italy).
Fine Arts education with Charles Vogt at the former ESBA (Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts) in Geneva (Switzerland), sculpture at the Lycée Henri IV and Atelier Savigny (Paris, France), painting with Eric Gallet (Arras, France) and Ilona Neuffer (Vienna, Austria), illustration with Alessandra Cimatoribus (Sarmede, Italy), woodcut and etching techniques with Nicola Sene at the Centro Internazionale della Grafica di Venezia (Venice, Italy).

Marie Malherbe was born in Nice (France). Her fine arts education starts at the École des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. She then studies sculpture in Paris, getting at the same time a bachelor in Mathematics (Pierre&Marie Curie University) and a Master’s degree in Byzantine History at the Sorbonne. In 1996 she wins a scholarship to Ca’Foscari University in Venice. In Venice, she studies woodcut and etching techniques with Nicola Sene at the Centro Internazionale della Grafica. In 2003 she sets up her own painting studio in Vienna (Austria), continuing her studies with artist and art historian Ilona Neuffer.

Her work is about beauty as a divine sign lifting up souls and thus transforming the world. Her research about interiority doesn’t exclude a certain theatricality in the form, proper to express the many dimensions in one being. She paints her enchanted world in a poetic style mixing byzantine and baroque languages.

HISTOIRES BAROQUES


This exhibition invites a revival of a certain baroque look at Nature and Life. A look made of extravagance, 'mise-en-scène', masks and mythology, but maybe also a certain wisdom behind the scenes...

ENTRE TERRE ET MER Gallery Imagoars, Venice, April 2012


Galleria IMAGOARS (Venice, Italy), Cannaregio 1145 campo del ghetto vecchio
1 -30 aprile 2012



La mostra “Entre Terre et Mer” presentata con l'associazione culturale IMAGOARS si propone di esplorare in modo pittorico i rapporti simbolici tra gli elementi terra e acqua. Quesito su cui si sono interrogati molto i scolastici e i pensatori del medioevo - compreso lo stesso Dante; perciò proprio alla maniera di una quaestio medioevale, il percorso inizia interrogando gli antichi testi fondatori, in questo caso il racconto della Creazione nella Genesi. I famosissimi versi ebraici vengono interpretati in modo quasi letterale seppur astratto, non solo in onore del "ghetto vecchio" di Venezia la cui personalità dialoga intimamente con lo spazio espositivo imagoars, ma anche perchè la Parola è comunque quel che darà senso a questa dualità acqua/terra - pure in francese ad esempio, dove la “mer” è anche la “mère”.

Il ciclo infatti si declina con scritture o frasi che giocano con gli elementi e dialogano con la pittura... fino a concludersi "naturalmente" con una serie di variazioni sul tema del luogo stesso dove, con massima maestria e genialità, è stato materializzato lo sposalizio tra l'acqua e la terra: Venezia.

Questo ciclo quindi propone un sogno che, invece di lasciare sopite le menti, risvegli profonde ed acquee sensazioni di qualche paradiso perduto... o ritrovato.
