Marie Clerel

Paris, FR

Marie Clerel (b. 1988, France) finds poetry in everyday life. Inspired by sunlight projected onto her studio wall, she was drawn towards “contactless” mediums such as the cyanotype. The bold, blue colour of the photographic paper has become a signature of her images. Deftly folding, exposing and manipulating, real and intangible objects are represented by abstract shapes and textures. Clerel has exhibited her unique rejuvenation of 19th Century methods throughout Europe. She obtained her Diplôme National Suspérieur D'expression Plastique, National School of Fine Arts in Lyon, where she received special praise for her unique body of work.
