Marie Deforche

Painting with Mediterranean flair: Marie Deforche takes us on a journey to summery Provence in her paintings.

Born in 1988, this French artist grew up in southern France and excels in perfectly reflecting the unique atmosphere of this region in her paintings.

She works with bright and vibrant colours, applying them in large areas, and plays with the contrasts of light and shadow. Deforche reduces her pictorial elements to their essential features, giving her works an elegant clarity. For her summery scenes, Deforche only needs a few objects. Besides the beach, the sea, and architecture, she often places women at the centre of her work, depicting them in moments of relaxation and tranquillity. Marie Deforche has developed a timeless painting style, where the warmth of Provence and the sense of vacation are immediately palpable.
