The bookshop-London: The bookshop in London Librairie Waterstones in Piccadilly.

Sitting in a quiet place, smelling that special smell of books, feeling that delicious thrill when you turn the pages... Bookstores and libraries are places of culture, learning, curiosity, dreams and hope... With a book you never feel alone; you can read it in a comfortable armchair, in the subway, on the beach. The difference between a book and my paintings is that the book tells a story, you imagine the characters and the places; with my paintings, you have the places, sometimes the characters but it is you who imagine the story... Acrylic on canvas protected by a glossy varnish; a black ribbon hides nails on the sides, no need for framing. Delivered ready to hang, with certificate of authenticity.

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....
