Pascale V Marquis’s exhibition, Klecks at the Speos Gallery – 7 rue Jules Vallès, 75011 Paris, from December 1st, 2015 to January 8, 2016.
“I have always been drawn to the image of the ink blot, that sort of ordered chaos on a crisp, white sheet of paper. The series photographs that would later become “KLECKS” began out of curiosity, a simple visual study of crossing klecksography, known as making images from ink blots, and photography. As a result, the “KLECKS” series shown in this exhibit was born and represents the merging of two seemingly unrelated art forms.
The driving force behind the creation of this series came from my constant interest in exploring the dichotomy of things, the idea of converging two unrelated subjects into a coherent image. In the case of “KLECKS”, photographs of women I had the privilege of photographing over time in Paris were merged into the ordered chaos of the ink blot.
On a more personal note, I also find this series to be representative of where I stand presently as a visual artist, at the crossroads of where my work has led me in the past and where I wish to take it into the future.”
