Saint Paul Cathedral and Millennium Bridge, London.

"When I started this painting, I saw the opposition between the religious and the profane; between the ancient world of a cathedral and the recent world of the Millennium Bridge; between reality and the cinema set. But when I painted this cathedral and this bridge, I saw something stronger: these white arms of the bridge seem to welcome the passers-by and lead them to the cathedral. And in these times of health crisis, of fear, of death, I saw in it a sign of closeness and protection. By force of religion. The sky is bright blue, the paint is smooth as protection; the cathedral is bathed in light as a sign of a protective God, the buildings at the foot of the bridge are anchored in reality with their bright colours and their somewhat ugly architecture: we are in the reality of everyday life. The humans who walk towards the cathedral are bathed in a white veil: they are not a real entity. This painting is both protective (the blue and white shades), the arms of the bridge opening up to the passers-by and nostalgic (the black shadows of the humans)."

GIF SUR YVETTE (91), FRANCE

63 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....
