1994 to today – Les clairs obscurs

GRAPHITE AND PAINT DRAWINGS

Lauréat Marois’s graphic works subtly evoke that final transcendence attained through the metaphorical nature symbolism that has typified his approach since the beginning of his career. Melding figurativism and abstraction in an intentionally unresolved ambivalence, Marois has continued to pursue and deepen his creative explorations, borrowing and examining landscape elements with great sensitivity. His latest drawings take the form of series and are notable for their decidedly austere approach and matter.
