Marijah is a French multidisciplinary artist, born in Laos (1974) with Tai Dam roots. She lives and works in the south of France (Gard) and collaborates also under the ~21358SMart~ project, four hands with artist Sander Steins (Netherlands). Her artworks are preserved and have been exhibited across different countries: France, USA, Belgium, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey and China.

'My work focuses on the exploration of surface and depth of my relationship to the world in different factors of acculturation through gesture and line. My interest goes from painting to drawing, from abstract to figurative and conventional techniques to digital modern techniques. I believe that art is a manifestation of the divine momentum that remains in each of us and these impulses express themselves in me in the duality between fullness and emptiness, impulsivity and mastery of gesture. Everything is combined with a deep attachment to nature but torn by the needs of our modern society.

As a woman and mutable personality I perceive what surround me a lot by feeling and emotion. So cyclically, I expressed my varying modes of expression, my glance, to different states of mind and different degrees of intensity. Painting is a way to release my superficiality by the dynamic gesture and color contrast. Drawing allows me to dig into my bowels and my organic cells and feel invisible connections and networks. The abstraction expresses my senses, my spiritual emotions and figuration expresses my basic and primal instincts almost animal.

What I'm trying to express through an eclectic panel is actually to grasp as a circular pattern. What I have experienced in my early finds included again in my most recent work in combination with new technical experiences.

Creating for me is like communicating. It is a kind of meeting which brings together several actors who must succeed in coming to a harmonious agreement. These actors are: colors, materials, shapes, images, lines and so on. I put them on stage and I must arrange a composition within the space, but I also trust my intuition to guide me. These actors have their own words to say too. Each element reacts differently depending on the alchemy that is created in their interaction. Yet I remain master of the work. I orchestrate everyone. I decide whether to saturate or to leave a blank space?. it all depends on the story I want to tell.'
