Marie Azzalini Hiroz


I was born and still live in Châble, in the Bagnes valley of Valais Canton. Although I was never able to attend an art school, I have become an artist through the many opportunities for learning and development that life has brought me.

In 2002 I opened my workshop, called Terre Colorée (coloured earth or coloured land), in Châble, and it is here that I teach drawing and painting to children and adults. I held my first exhibition in 2003 at Plan-Cerisier’s Musée Mazot. I have been a member of the Bagn’Art association for several years.

Following a powerful inner transformation, my inspiration now comes from the spiritual world. Through my seeking of harmony between matter, volume, and movement, my creations tend towards a universal language and are either thought-provoking or conducive to well-being. Symbolic elements sometimes appear in them. As Kandinsky said, “Art is spiritual.”

The impressionists, the surrealists, Hans Erni, Kandinsky, Klee, Hilma Af Klint, and Zao Wu Ki are among the artists I admire.

Artistic approach

My works are born in the silence of my heart. Gently they emerge while the pigments are being ground. I don’t know where they’re going to take me; it’s a new adventure every time. I let their music guide me. By large gestures, the first colours take their places on the canvas. I stand before them listening to their message …meditation. Suddenly everything becomes clear and I know where I’m going.

The second creative step occurs during meditation as I receive a vision of the painting. I sketch the picture and then begin its execution.

I have undertaken research on sacred geometry, on the Golden Number, and on harmonic proportions. The dimensions of most of my paintings are according to the Golden Number.

I make my own colours and I let my prevailing urges guide me as to the insertion of various natural materials. Later on I took courses from an art restorer, Mrs. Gisèle Carron, in order to learn the old techniques and to refine the preparation of my oils.
