Marcel Demagny (painter)

Biography

Marcel Demagny graduated in the Nancy school of Architecture, and was a studen of André Roger. In parallel to his career as a chief architect of the Urban Community of the Grand Nancy from 1976 to 2005, he practiced drawing and painting — passions which followed him since his childhood. Influences of Nicolas de Staël, Cathelin, Ambrogiani and others mark different periods of his style, now mature.

Artistic approach

Marcel Demagny works with a knife. Though most of his works consists of landscapes and floral compositions, he doesn't restrain himself to particular subjects. His oils venture on the edge between abstraction and figuration, and are recognizable by their wide flat warm color tints evoking subtle lighting effects, with an astonishing ability to suggest either the lightness or the oppressiveness of the atmosphere, up to a falling sky.
