"The big finale of the series on New York City. I liked this series especially because I re-imagined NY, a city I've never seen in person, which allowed me to reinvent it, to modify it, to rebuild it to my liking. I liked to live this New York craziness, this madness, these mixtures of skyscrapers that push each other, overlap and seem to literally come out of the ground like certain crystals that grow upwards like explosions.

That's the idea I wanted to produce here: this profusion of buildings coming out of the same black crevasse. I am once again referring to an American superhero: this time: Superman who fears Green Kriptonite (represented here as those buildings that grow in the shape of crystals)" - Valérie Le Meur

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....
