About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Artist and farmer working in Béarn (64), Marie Labat strongly felt, during the first confinement of 2020, the general awareness of the need to return to basics. This has translated, for many of us, into the need to get closer to the earth and to practice the right gestures; a return of the hand to vegetable work for example. Gestures, which she observed daily on her farm and which seemed to her to have been ignored until then by the population, have again become essential gestures in the eyes of all; a common impulse towards a new world. Marie Labat's plastic research began with a project called "Gestures and faults", composed of split or broken geometric volumes and digital drawings of observed and collected gestures printed on textiles. The images associate the gesture with the landscapes, the living elements and the agricultural tools present in his living space. The faults on the volumes, for their part, testify to our failing system when it is destabilized by a disruptive element. Awareness of our flaws, of the necessary preservation of our earth, and of the omnipresence of digital technology constitute the essence of this research. Throughout the production, the power of the gestures represented aroused in the visual artist the desire to enhance them in a series of drawings and paintings, and sometimes a hybridization of the two mediums.

French artists

Marie Labat is a French visual artist born in 1983. She lives and works in Lys in the Atlantic Pyrenees. Being a rural artist according to her, Marie Labat gives a main place to craftmanship as well as to the Relationship between man and nature. The work of the earth is at the origin of a whole civilization, of his culture and his evolution. To study the way in which people exploits nature and to derive their subsistance allows us to learn a lot about the actual state of a society, its values and its objectives. Marie Labat is interested mainly in landscapes, which means in a wild space modified by man with a logic of appropiation. From this geographic delimitation, the artist studies the myths, the codes and the legends of the area, doing a visual work that allows him to create new landscapes, from his own apprehension of the existing one. Marie Labat exhibits her work regularly in France.
