Marcelle Baron – known as Aurélie Nemours – is a first-rate French artist whose work belongs to geometric abstraction. Aurélie Nemours’ compositions have no subject or representation, except for the forms that the artist incorporates and whose number will be reduced over the years. From 1953, Aurélie Nemours structures her works – almost systematically – on the basis of verticals and horizontals. From 1960, squares and rectangles are at the centre of her creations. Aurélie Nemours said she wanted to “install the void” by her subtle and perfect juxtapositions of squares and rectangles, black, gray, coloured or contrasted. During her career, Aurélie Nemours produced oils, gouaches, pastels, collages and many serigraphs, including series on which she sometimes spent several years.
