In the "bricks and mortar" series I visited Dublin a few years ago, I left it with a lot of emotion. Dublin, as a city strong in its history, its people. In this painting I wanted to show my attachment to this people who made the history of the city, who fought against poverty, illusions and power. It is a painting that may not be "beautiful or joyful" for some people but it is strong, powerful. As much by the colours as by the style: the flatness of the paint in the material. These small houses are not often highlighted, so much one prefers white houses and clean, bourgeois Haussmann-style buildings. I like these little houses that have a past, these little houses that represent the people of this city, of this country. We are in the mood for comedies like Stephen Frears' "The Van", 1996. A bittersweet comedy that makes you laugh and cry at the same time. Acrylic on canvas, protected by an acrylic varnish.

Ready to hang on the wall, dated, signed, with certificate of authenticity and invoice.

Valérie Le Meur

gif sur yvette (91), France

93 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....
