Marianne Dubuis - Cutting Art

Description

An artist by nature, Marianne Dubuis has been cutting since she was very young.

Marianne Dubuis grew up on the coast, not far from Lake Geneva. But her attraction lies in the mountains where she spent her holidays and weekends, a passion that is reflected in her work. Since her childhood, she has drawn meticulously, in the manner of a cut-out, and cutting became a logical consequence. She gave her very first cut-out to her sister at the age of 13. In 1979, she became an "official" cutter. Self-taught, she creates her own "style" of cutting without it being fixed: she likes to challenge herself in her creativity. Marianne likes to tell her world in images, cut in one piece in black on a white background, or in coloured papers, cut and assembled into characters and stories, on a black cut-out "framework". Whatever the technique: the paintings express what she feels; the desire to share her love of the mountains, the need for a "human" agriculture close to the rich nature of the region, the traditions and values of the people of Pays-d'Enhaut. Landscapes, moments of life, or more interior emotions, it is a wink or a piece of the heart, a thought or a dream that she likes to create in this complete form of expression that is the cut-out. And, if the viewer is touched or inspired, what a reward for this craftswoman!
