A fabulous thoroughbred sculpture by Artist Marie Ackers 

Marie specialises in 2D & 3D art, and deconstructing shapes 

“When I started sculpting , I learned from the old master and my biggest inspirations was the "French Animaliers".Since 2009-2010, I started to add my own vision to my work and move to different directions.  Although my main work is based around sculpture, I am an overall artist interested in all different medium 3D or 2D.


In my new work since 2012-13, I deconstruct the movements, simplify the shapes and identify the dynamic and the rhythms of the lines to produce contemporary sculpture or paintings.


Each of my work approach of the subjects defines concerns such as geometric, forms and shape or space. Each works are linked by recurring forms and shape , I strip down to pure lines, remove any details and simplify forms, movement , understand rythme to find the inner strength of the piece.


My inspiration comes from various sources from the “French animalier” to the simplicity and purity of Brancusi’s work, the shapes and presence of Henry Moore sculptures, the sharp and clean lines of Calder metal sculptures as well as Pompom, Lynn Chadwick, architecture old and modern. My work is sometimes compared to Art Deco or to Etruscan style but this is not the case at all. I am not following a particular movement as my main concerns for my work are lines, Balance , rhythm and color. I have been working on those lines for a while now and most of my work devices from studies and sketches not a particular art genre or style.”


"The simplicity is the complexity solved."- Brancusi
