Marie-Paule Lesage lives and works near Strasbourg (France). She uses geometric shapes in her work, especially circles and triangles, but also organic forms. There is a sense of lightness and elegance about her prints, in particular the ones which use embossed shapes with no or only minimal use of colour. Working in series gives her the opportunity to put the same shapes in new configurations and so create différent fields of tension. The visible structure of the wood plays an important part in her woodcuts and softens the coldness of associating blue and red to a stark green. The artist also presents a limited edition of seven illustrated poems by Guiseppe Ungaretti (1888-1970).
