Q & A with Marie Jacotey

I interviewed and shot French artist Marie Jacotey for Soma magazine about her love of films and the inspiration behind her paintings. 'I am very inspired by films; both narration-wise and pictorially. I find film has an interesting format relating closely to that of a novel; fiction, character, timewise. And, I also find to it a real painterly quality'.

Her parents and grandfather are all architects and encouraged her to draw from an early age. Her brother and sister are in creative fields as well.
