About Maryse Pique
Born and raised in Martinique, I am an self taught artist who paints for several years now. My paintings are inspired by my culture of origin and European culture. My passion was discovered in Bristol . Everything that surrounds me, my feelings, passions or dreams are an inspiration. I like diversity, and that is why my paintings are created in a single specimen.
My imagination must always be in turmoil, it always pushes me to research, innovate and change. Repetition bores me. I constantly self-criticism to improve myself both in life and in my activities. Love of Abstraction because it puts in a flutter every sense of the viewers and it requires more mental gymnastics to understand the artwork.
I have always wanted to make paintings that are impossible to walk past, paintings that grab and hold your attention. The more you look at them, the more satisfying they become for the viewer. The more time you give to the painting, the more you get back. The viewer is a living, breathing being that moves about in space and I want the painting to be experienced like that. I want my painting to imitate life in that way. I want the experience of looking at it to be very much like the experience of walking through a bigger landscape...
