ABOUT MARGAUX DERHY

Born in December 1985 in France, Dehry now lives and works between Paris and London.

A self taught artist, Dehry started painting at the age of 17. In 2015, she began 3 years at the Ateliers Beaux-Arts in the City of Paris (ABA), with Gonzalo Belmonte. She is currently studying for a Master of Arts at Central Saint Martins in London.

In 2017, Dehry spent several months in South Africa with a 3 months international artist residency at Greatmore Studios in Cape Town. She participated in the Investec Cape Town Art Fair with Greatmore Studios in 2018.

‘Intimacy, grief, healing, passage of life – my work deals with these subjects which I find are strangely absent from contemporary fine art, although they comprise so much of the subject matter of contemporary film, photography and literature. Our world today cannot be understood without taking into account the psychological and emotional aspects of people. By developing very personal work around self-mythology, illusionism and a bit of fantasy playing with perception and truth, I propose a pictorial work that is a tribute to filial and brotherly love.’

– Margaux Dehry
