Under the cobblestones of Paris: the sea, the Seine? A dream setting, this magnificent palace that is the Grand Palais in Paris, seen from the equally magnificent Pont Alexandre III. See this Paris of lights, this tourist Paris that attracts visitors from all over the world. Look how the canopy attracts the sun and reflects it in the blue sky. You notice that behind this dream landscape that I wanted to represent faithfully, there is a less cheerful reality: that of the water that rises every year and puts these magnificent buildings in danger.

This painting, as is often the case in my paintings, is on two levels: you can only see the beauty of the site, you can also be concerned about the phenomenon of rising water levels that occurs every year.

Valérie Le Meur

GIF SUR YVETTE (91), FRANCE

60 works

His first paintings already represented factories, characters from everyday life. Already, she painted her first scenes by highlighting the light, the colours and by framing these scenes in a very personal way.

Valérie Le Meur works with acrylic and inks. Acrylic is a material that suits her because she works by quick touches, she is impatient and this technique allows her to give her painting a speed, a raw aspect, sometimes violent, she is in the urgency of the moment.

His paintings are representations of contemporary, urban reality. She works from photos she takes, chooses and frames. The work of composing the painting is almost entirely done at that time. What she is looking for above all is an atmosphere. Characters that you can guess from behind the windows of a building, the conversations you hear in a pub.

She will gladly ignore the reality of a shape or colour, or perspective. She wants to get the spectators into her paintings, she has set the scene and invites them to imagine their own scenario. Valérie Le Meur is a humanist painter, the human being is at the heart of her paintings; whether it is represented or underlying. We see them or we guess them. Behind a building facade, in a crane, behind the theatre curtains. She is not looking for the conceptual or the pleasant.

His paintings are a mark of our contemporary world: a theatre, a factory or a building under construction, a museum that drowns under the effect of rising water. A testimony of our daily life in our urban environment that it wants to keep for future generations. With a part of a dream....
