New York corner. In the New York series, here is the last painting of the post-confinement period. The city, the buildings, in which I lived for a very long time, have a singular character for me. I don't consider these buildings as material entities but as moments of human life: behind these walls hide secrets, families live, love or fight.

In the New York series, I contrast the brick buildings that represent, for me, the buildings of the workers, of the immigrants, with the glass and steel buildings, symbols of success, business and the money of the "white collars": they look like businessmen in France. I have a habit of filling all my paintings, sometimes to the point of a feeling of confinement like the last London series on confinement with that heavy sky and those buildings of stone and blood-red brick anchored in the ground.

In this post-confinement painting, I covered the building with pieces of sky as a symbol of openness, of lightness even if the atmosphere is still heavy. The violent colours that confront each other are the symbol of a post-confinement, turned towards the sky and the future, yes, but still very much anchored in the present full of uncertainty.

Acrylic on canvas protected by an acrylic varnish the unstudded sides are painted with this blue of the azure sky dated, signed, ready to hang on the wall delivered with a certificate of authenticity and an invoice.

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....
