Pascal’s painting, described as "humanist expressionism", is above all "human painting." Borrowed from an "existential poetry", it reflects man in all that he is. Painted on backgrounds of cold sobriety, his motionless and isolated characters, with expressionless faces, show great solitude, a symbol of the individualism of our time. Martha Crégut Pellegrino, curator of Bann'Art of Banne says rightly, that a witness to our society in crisis, Pascal "paints with admirable tenderness the faces of the night, the wounded, those lost in the early morning, but also the joy of childhood and the small simple pleasures of everyday life.“
The shadows left deliberately by the artist make his paintings a mirror in which everyone is free to tell his own story and set the tone. Brimming with creative energy, the artist constantly has several paintings in progress. Having today made the choice of painting with oils, he enjoys the time this technique leaves him to observe and correct almost at will the evolution of his work. Pascal Marcel embraces with much emotion the words of the artist Bernard Piga: "painting is a friend who gave me a real life."
