The internationally renowned artist Mylène Mai is once again exhibiting in the GALERIE M ESSMER . Her works made from natural materials were already represented there in 2017.
From July 7th, 2019 , the works of the young French artist will be on display in the exhibition ” Hypnotic Lines “. In May 2019, the artist presented her work with great success in the renowned exhibition Révélations under the dome of the Grand Palais in Paris.
Since 2014 , the autodidact , who has a doctorate in humanities, has been successfully exhibiting in numerous international galleries and is represented in well-known private collections in Germany and abroad.
Due to their complex surface structure, Mai’s monochrome works are paintings and sculptures at the same time .
Mai gets her inspiration from nature. The artist orchestrates and animates the stiff plaster material with bold, organic lines and edges that are reminiscent of tree bark and moving seaweed . With sharp tools, the young artist digs structures into thick gypsum boards, whose surfaces she then painstakingly and individually patinas . Each work is as unique as a fingerprint.
