Art fans have a new reason to visit Marrakech: The work of painter Sibylle Baltzer will be on display at the Four Seasons Resort Marrakech until April 15, 2013.
Sibylle Baltzer is a French artist who, after living several years in London, moved to Morocco, where she now lives and practices her work as a painter. She graduated from the Chelsea School of Art, Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and the Slade School of Fine Art, and now focuses on abstract painting. She introduces into her paintings materials such as metal, plastic and rubber into shapes, colors and space.
"These are works where things appear - they enter the field, they come out, they accept the constraint edges and escape, they play with the limits of the canvas, and so, despite their insistence on the physical substance, they are largely beyond the rhetoric of abstract minimalism and self-sufficient objects," according to art critic David Ryan.
Recent personal exhibitions iinclude the Delfina Studios, Bermondsey Street, London, 2007; "Dust" (May 2008) and "Bubble gum" (June 2010), Galerie Ra, Marrakech; then the Athanor Gallery, Marseille, October 2010.
