Gently approach to make the light dance and create moving shadows... Take a small step to the side and everything changes... Then another and another again. With each look, a new work! While admiring the ballet of starlings in the Toulouse sky, who also create changing pictures in a few moments, Léa Valmain wanted to give the name "Murmurations" to these engraved papers. The humblest of materials, paper, has always fascinated her. It sometimes bears curious names, varies in thickness, velvety, format, colour... The solids and the voids, the shadow and the light that play with the notions of presence and absence are the other centres of artistic interest of this artist. With the help of surgical scalpels, she delicately cuts the paper in its thickness, creates a movement, makes lines and curves spring up without (almost!) ever piercing the sheet. She sculpts directly, without prior drawing, just guided by the emotion of a moment. The pattern that appears then is not fixed. With this Murmuration Pépite, Léa Valmain adds golden metallic leaves to create even more reflections and play of light.

The most humble of materials, paper, has always fascinated Léa Valmain. It sometimes bears curious names, varies in thickness, velvety, format, colour... The full and empty, the shadow and light that play with the notions of presence and absence are the other artistic interests of this artist. Using a surgical scalpel, she gently cuts the paper in its thickness, creates a movement, makes lines, curves gush out without (almost!) ever piercing the sheet. She sculpts directly, without prior drawing, just guided by the emotion of a moment. The pattern that appears then is not fixed.

Gently approach to make the light dance and create moving shadows... Take a small step aside and everything changes... Then another and another. At every glance, a new work! While admiring in the Toulouse sky, the ballet of starlings who also create changing paintings in a few moments, she wanted to give the name "Murmurations" to these engraved papers.
