Pascale Maguerez, Artist
Vit et travaille à Lisbonne, Portugal
Lives ans works in Lisboa, Porugal
Born in France in 1959, Pascale Maguerez spent 10 years in Senegal and Ivory Coast where she started art studies.
Back in France she obtained the National Superior Diploma in Fine Arts with distinction in 1983.
Classical French culture and African art have become the opposing poles of her creative imagination.
When painting, she responds to an existential necessity.Maguerez always needs references to corporal things. Because " if one can't feel the body, one should give up painting a picture".
"One painting always refers to another painting", Maguerez further declared, and this, no doubt, is the most convincing message of a work of art which inscribes itself in the continuity of the history of art, and even wider history - that of the painter-subject condemned by the urgency of creation, and an "inner necessity".
