Marie-Laure studied Literature and Philosophy in Paris. During this time, she also spent a lot of time in various artists’ studios in the city.
She started her career working in an advertising agency where she enjoyed combining her deep sense of aesthetics with her love of words and graphic design. After having worked 15 years in this area, and in parallel, organizing solo exhibits of her artwork and participating in selected collective exhibitions, she decided to dedicate herself full-time to painting in order to go deeper into her artistic creation.
Marie-Laure Ginet’s artwork is closely associated with free figuration. It explores emotions and movement through form, textures and colors, or Monochromes. Her work focuses intensely on lines and brushstroke.
Figurative and freehand, these lines and strokes represent her own expression and are subjective. Her works are energetic and alive. Her paintings transform and often tend towards abstract expressionism.
Marie-Laure is drawn to the brushstroke and its power. She’s inspired by street art and graffiti. She’s also impelled by « Art brut »; completely spontaneous and authentic. When we interview her about her work, she says: « for me, painting is an impetus from the inside that I wish to share with the world. »
