According to Syham Weigant, author of the catalog, the painting of Maryam Mechiche stands exactly between zero and infinity. « And it is not a truism but a metaphysics ».
Thanks to her scientific background, « Mayram Mechiche has the rare opportunity to enjoy this ability and in many ways: from her scientific studies, she has learned to distinguish a certain invisible, one that avoids the common, the one that is distinguished in the shade of a laboratory through chemical experiments or thanks to complex physical tools. Light and colors, she has learned to distinguish the undulatory components as much as the chemical compositions, » as admirably written by Syham Weigant.
Weignant also talks about another aptitude of the artist which leans more towards the artistic side of the spectrum: « we do not know where her « genius » comes from, this mediumistic talent that allows her to see beyond … » And thus combining these two metaphysical characteristics: scientific and artistic, Mechiche brings together two qualities essential to solving this mystery: Imagination and freedom.
« It may be a sky then, autumn or summer, evening or dawn? it is thus towards infinity that this patient, methodical and meditative painting tends. »
If there is one thing we will all see, it is the invention of a new language and the emergence of an artist that will inevitably prove herself.
