Marie Bernard is a collaboration between Rotterdam NL based designer Masja van Deursen and artist Serge Game that started in 2017

Based on their separate professional experiences they investigate their shared passion for the tactile use of colour and materials. Their approach is very intuitive and allows for both abstract as well as more figurative results. Typically they will pick up a pair of scissors and start cutting up sheets of coloured paper and arranging the shapes without a predetermined plan.

Key are the imperfect overlaps – as a direct result of this modus operandi – that enhance the works’ visual tension and physical presence. These flaws – which are present throughout all subsequent pieces Marie Bernard create – bear testimony to the analogue origins of their collaboration, as well as to the firm belief that intuition and an organic approach are to be embraced in order to make the works resonate.
