Marie Moon (b. 1988) is a German-born, Berlin-based, inter-disciplinary artist. Fascinated by “pureness, essence and simplicity” she researches and creates works using collage, de-collage, painting, photography, video, and installation. Deconstruction; destruction and re-creation are essential elements in her work, she utilizes materials naturally and deliberately discovered in her environment to illustrate the oversaturated chaos of everyday life.

Inspired by de-collage – “new realism,” dada, and abstract art, she creates layered, vibrant works loaded with meaning and emotion.
