The factories painted by Marion Tivital are objects reduced to minimal geometrical forms. The buildings appears in a foggy environment which blurs their contours and transforms them into abstract shapes over desolate landscapes. Almost deprived of any human or natural presence, the scenes present an ambiguous scale: the subject may be small dioramas or be located far away.
The buildings from the “Industrial Landscapes” series are composed and depicted just like the bottles and small containers from the “Plastics” series: both subjects all permeated by a Morandi-esque sense of stillness and both are investigated through the same meticulous and obsessive attention.
“The underlying force that occupies these shapes, the calm energy, the form of their almost abstract structures, fascinates me, and makes me wish to listen to their solemn language.
From which emanates a sense of unity, of beauty, visible, and timeless. Their geometrical surfaces confound the values that distinguish near and far, where sky and earth come together.
In spite of the discrepancy of elements before our eyes,unused to seeing, appears a space combining incertitude and geometry.” Marion Tivital
