Richomme Marion was born in Tarbes in 1986 and currently lives and works at La Menuiserie. She graduated from the School of Fine Arts in Nantes and has recently exhibited in Paris, Nantes, Strasbourg and Brussels.
Through the use of proper methods of study taken from various fields, she creates, defines and analyses new types of animals, plants and minerals. She studies, tests and reveals the subject matter through engraving, hollowing, pointing, furrowing, wrinkling, streaking, aligning, and repeating… Through the artistic action, she attempts to study the question of how the natural shape forms itself? Of what action is it the result? Her artistic inventory employs real scientific approaches and holds to the standards that apply to them; drawings, photographs and models. She uses the classes and techniques of taxonomic and systematic grouping to invent a new stage of the animal and cellular kingdoms. Biology and its mysteries are revealed through the personal history and exploration of the artist. Her species take the form of a tactile imagination created in porcelain, stoneware or earthenware.
