Photo_Mariette_Chappuis_15Mariette Chappuis

Moving from copperplate engraving in the 90s to mixed techniques in the early 21st century, Mariette Chappuis continues to demonstrate her interest in experimenting with a wide variety of materials.  Fascinated by collage, she selects paper of many different types and origins, sometimes even resorting to making her own. These can be found in some of her works which include acrylic, chalk and collages. More recently, Mariette Chappuis engaged in the discovery of a new world, which is not only her inner world but also the world surrounding her - a colorful world which can be accessed with patience, meticulousness and surrender to the passing of time, roaming thoughts and emerging ideas. She feels a relentless need to take refuge in this inner world, and it is with a simple magnifying glass, plain pencils and Indian inks that she is able to enter into this universe as one enters into a protective cocoon. From the entanglement of countless tiny fragments emerges an amazing variety of rhythms and waves of colors.
