Having a French grandfather who was a post-Impressionist, Marc Rembold began creating Impressionist works himself at the age of six. He had his first exhibition at 14. But as he grew older, the Swiss artist began forging a new path for himself that involved bold experimentation with colour, both pigments and technique. “I researched everywhere to find new pigments,” he says. “In doing so, I created my own colour concept that I call ‘light in colour’. These pigments change colour depending on temperature and when there is light. The colour changes are not dependent on electricity or anything else. In this way, a living colour was created. It’s a unique concept. Working in a contemporary context means working with materials and possibilities from now, not from yesterday.” About his Liquidseries, Rembold says “for me, the intellectual point of my work is to rematerialize invisible electric light into a visible material colour form. From immaterial to material, from invisibility to the visible.”
