ARTIST DETAILS

MARIANNE PON - LAYUS

Canada

“Pon-Layus’ paintings show oddly similar women in sensual and aggressive settings with a disconcerting humor. The situations that she depicts are in contradiction with the ways in which women are shown in classical paintings. Far from lascivious models or respectable mothers, her protagonists have a right to violence, desire, sadism and masochism. With cathartic intent, she wants to free the female figure of heteronormative fantasy and self-shame by exploring domination and role reversal.”
