French, London-based illustrator Marie Jacotey is known for her coloured pencil works depicting the familiar truths of relationships and intimate emotions. At Nicer Tuesdays, she delved more into her inspirations and obsessions. “Everything that people would prefer hidden – that’s what I’m trying to talk about,” she explained. “The cringyness of relationships is what interests me!”
Candid, funny and brilliantly analytical, Marie’s talk also covered her latest works, that see her experiment with dry pastels and incorporate poetry by Rachael Allen. “A lot of my previous work has been really talkative, using images and words. The pastels have allowed a more painterly approach to drawings.” The final series, exhibited at Hannah Barry Gallery, features flat works and a large textile hanging, made to appear “like I had torn up my sketchbook” with drawings and poetry combined across the large format piece.
