OX'Art. Margaux Laneyrie
Born in Roanne, France, Year 1993. She trained very early in dance, then discovered the plastic arts, in particular painting. At four years old, she began dance lessons, with Classical and Modern-Jazz. She found herself attracted to Hip-hop and Breakdance. She continued her evolution in dance and blossomed fully in Hip-hop, a discipline that still accompanies her today, with the contemporary dance. At the age of 12, she began her initiation to painting. Practicing plastic arts in primary and secondary high school. Forced to paint with a brush, she breaks the rules and launches into dance-painting performances, in workshops and in the street. After that, it’s the beginning of a big adventure in universities. Firstly, in Plastic-Art and Historical Art’s university. She finished her studies in an Artistic Creation’s Master, with theater, performance, dance and she felt free to mix all disciplines with The Painting. Now, artist, dancer and plastic-choreographic performer. At 28, OX'Art. Margaux Laneyrie dances with giddiness and exposes it.OX'Art mixes dance with painting, in an intermedial process that she calls "body-brush" in order to deliver intense immersive experiences via kinesthetic sharing. The plastico-choreographic performance, the main method, allows him to pictorially transcribe the state of his body in action on the canvas. Subject to vertigo and their visual and psycho-physical effects, almost syncopal, the artist has been creating and reflecting for years around this subject. She practices the body centrifuge in order to create pictorial backgrounds, then she caresses the surface with pastel in order to define shapes informing of dancing bodies, in weightlessness, twirling or even falling. The work of color and contrast is important in his project. Both colorful and dark, OX'Art's works visually reflect fragments of reality. These chromatic contrasts or these color explosions are indicative of the artist's "intra-eyelid" visions during vertigo attacks. In this dark universe of syncope, with closed eyes, there is a multi-colored facet of small scintillating touches. The artist works mainly on large format, up to two meters by four, in order to express, share and immerse the viewer in a dizzying immersive experience. Between visual arts and performing arts, the limit is tiny. Art is a show, it is a life experience, an immersion in an elsewhere to be shared. The artist offers an invitation to travel, to an elsewhere made of mental landscapes, in a spatial and sensitive universe, that of waking dreams. OX'Art's approach and performance gradually tend to transform into an installation device. OX’Art exhibits in atypical galleries, physical or digital, in France and internationally, notably in Italy : Milano, Spain : Madrid and Fuerteventura in Canary Island, . Recently, she won the 1st Prize at the Official Palmarès, of the ABSTRACT ART 2021 international competition, in Spain, in the “Paintings (all medias)” category.
