About Marie

Marie E. Saint-Cyr is an abstract painter whose area of budding expertise is experimenting with colors and  inventing a new space in her paintings which challenges our notions of how 2-D and 3-D shapes should interact in a space. Marie is keen on color relationships in her artwork and on various mark making in her work. The colors she uses are often vibrant and highly saturated. Experimentation in art and the process of creating her artwork pieces are two important aspects for Marie when it comes to producing art. Majority of Marie’s paintings aim to challenge our perception of space and how objects must behave in a normal space. Often, Marie works on 3-5 pieces simultaneously.

      Marie migrated to the United States from Haiti at the age of eight years old. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Fashion Institute of Technology and has had the opportunity to study at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence, Italy. She has also traveled extensively throughout Europe studying and observing art internationally.
