Overview

Quebec painter Marie Rioux‘s atmospheric landscapes are coming to Abbozzo Gallery for her first solo-exhibition with us. Inspired by her surroundings and North American geographies, Rioux paints vast monochromatic landscapes often interrupted by informal figures and subtle, fluorescent highlights. The work is a contemplation on the space she occupies within and without where “a multitude of people encountered in the metro and in streets and park inhabit my work, confronting the silence of my immense bygone lands. The anonymous ‘Others’, heterogeneous, indifferent people share the same place as me.
