The Kachina Doll

Adrien Marcais

Adrien Marcais’s artistic approach is influenced by surrealism and symbolism. He likes the idea of the artist as a shaman who despite the technological evolution of the society is the remain of the past. Marcais has been deeply influenced by African art and the animistic experiences he encountered when he was living in West Africa, especially the Dogon country in the north of Mali.
I use in my paintings a lot of personal items and memories that I depict in some images in the image like the remain of personal memories. I use my personal experience as an attempt to reach the universal experience inside each of us.”

  • “The Kachina Doll” is a symbol that I use very often in my paintings. Between the spiritual and mysterious aspects of the Hopi representation and the toy for the kids that belongs to childhood, it is a strong bridge between the reality of an object and the spiritual interpretation we can give to it.
  • This is a lino print which I practice on top of my painting. It allows me to depict something more illustrative and allow a different approach of my art
