Mixed media

136 x 102 cm

Technique : Collage et media mixtes 

In her unique collages, Marion Boehm depicts people who live or lived in Paris: musicians, dancers, writers, and painters. In these images, the tradition of African wax fabrics can be seen, a wax technique inspired by Javanese batik which appeared in the 19th century. When it arrived in Europe, it became a flourishing industry set between Europe and Africa. Marion Boehm keeps this tradition alive through an abundance and richness of colour, associating a unique costume with each portrait.
