The work of Marc Cavell is unique in the use of raw materials to create the illusion of movement by multiple sets of lights, transparency effects, and reflections.
In 1948, under the tutelage of Albert Gleizes, Cavell participated in artistic research in the workshop of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. In 1950, he exhibited at Nîmes, the Visconti gallery in Paris, and the Salon des Independants, mainly displaying cubist paintings.
Open to other forms of art, on Pablo Picasso’s advice he began to work on other surfaces such as textiles and ceramics. During this period, he was commissioned to participate in the decoration of Normandy and the French Embassy in Helsinki.
From 1955 to 1968, he conducted research and experiments on light and movement. His works drew their inspiration from the balance of the formal structures of Futurism.
