Organic. This is the first word that comes to mind when observing the work of Marie Dague. The painter focuses on the representation of living things: plants, animals and especially human beings. The breath of life is thus palpable thanks to the material of the paint, revealing the artist's gesture. It is also tangible through its fragile character, through the deep, sometimes tormented expressions of her characters. Although Marie Dague seems to be fascinated by human beings, she also has a critical eye, as in her series "Screenshot et plus si infinité", exhibited at the Beaubourg café in 2022, in which she ironically associates a man with an animal, in order to trace the different male profiles that she has come across on dating websites.
