About the Event
Artist: Marie Serda
My production is post impressionism figurative, inspired by french art, ambiances and atmosphere.
I love the idea of spreading my art full of love to the world. I cherish Nature and look for humanity hidden in my characters.
I love to follow the old master’s steps, being inspired by them and experiment each time new way of painting, using oil technic on linen, long -lasting quality of supplies and pigments. I stretch my canvases myself and strive to paint from the real world. (portraits or landscaping).
I can work with pictures for commissions.
I am happy to work with oil, pastel, gouache and watercolors.
I have been honored and won different competitions in Normandy, France in oil and Pastel.I have been honored in Cambridge UK by Kettle's Yard museum among all the artists of the Open Studio’s summer Exhibition for my “grand grand mother Piano”. I also won the Euphrate Museum competition 3 years ago in oil, among all the art department. some online competition made by a Chinese Gallery even the Euphrate Museum during the summer.
For me, Art is a deep breath toward a moment of joy for me.
My origins are French, Spanish, Italian, Malteses. I was born in December 1961 in Algeria. I consider myself a self made artist as I spent most of my adolescence free time in Museums and Galleries in Paris and never finished any schools.
Van Gogh, Maxime Noiré, Etienne Dinet, a lot of Algerianists and also Marie Laurencin , Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt have been my inspiration to become an artist.
I participated in several competitions in Normandy, France.
I joined several group exhibitions and, I did several solo shows in Normandy, France, and Cambridge, England.
Coutances, Bricquebec, Valognes, La Haye du puits, Portbail, Gouville sur mer.
I have organized several exhibitions and competitions for students in France, Valognes, and in England in Cambridge..
Moving to the USA 8 years ago, I took all the art classes and the English classes I could before Covid struck the country.
Since February I am thrilled and grateful to have an art studio in the Alameda Artworks Building, with all this fabulous company of generous and wonderful artists inside.
Today, I am very proud to show and present my art to you, and hope it will make you very happy.
My deep wish, is to to make people realize how precious and powerful the women and the nature are.
