Biography

Amandine Maria lives and works in the south of France. Her background is both technical and artistic, as after a master’s degree in art sciences she continued her training at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage in Versailles and in Marseille, to become a landscape designer.

Her “Maps on foot” mix the aerial viewpoint of traditional cartography and the one of the walker who apprehends all the sensitive aspects of a landscape. By revealing all the potential of the places experienced by their inhabitants, her drawn maps are poetic expressions of the landscape and sociological issues of a territory.

 

Techniques

These maps of natural or city landscapes are orchestrated in ink and watercolour with a soft and plain cartographer’s palette, the texts and words to be discovered come to twist the refined application of the drawing. The representation is two-dimensional with multiple viewpoints, making the drawings readable from any direction.

The gallery's
opinion

Amandine Maria’s paper works seduce by the delicacy of their line but also by the precision of the drawing. We find our bearings with delight in well-known places or even dream of a walk in the legendary Sainte Victoire magnified by Cézanne. A drawing by Amandine Maria is a motionless journey.
