Works by Murielle Maudet

Murielle Maudet was born in 1976 in Niort.

She obtained her national diploma in plastic arts in Poitiers before studying at the Beaux-Arts in Toulouse, followed by a Master's degree at the Sorbonne. Nominated for the Pierre-David Weill drawing prize at the Institut de France in 2011, where she will be exhibited, she confirms the interest of institutions for her work, a few years after her scholarship at the Centre Léonard de Vinci in Toulouse and her passage at the Salon de Montrouge. She got her first article in 2007, was noticed by Télérama in 2009, and exhibited regularly in France, Germany (French Institute of Düsseldorf) and Ukraine. In parallel, she teaches drawing. She lives and works in the Parisian suburbs.

Her line is precise, delicate, detailed, very "clean" and yet complex. Murielle Maudet works in successive series, and forces herself to make drastic choices and explorations.

Or more precisely, explorations of borders.

The one between life and death, in painting, because the death of the latter has been proclaimed so much in her generation.

The one between drawing and painting, in a series so beautifully ironic where the place of the painting is left blank in the space of the drawing. But where do drawing and painting stop? Are they intertwined, and to what extent?

The one between man and woman, and between species, in his series on the myth of Actaeon, where a rather androgynous Diana poses in the virility of the murder of Actaeon, who will himself cross the limits of the species, by dying incarnated as a stag. This series, done with Stabilo n°33 and 68 on paper, in very large and very small format, will inspire him during the first two years of the covid, in 2020 and 2021. A titanic work which requires patience and abnegation, and this time manages to blur the border between drawing and painting, by the irruption of light and colour.
