Acrylic "Le Tournage" on canvas 65/46/2 cm Scene of the shooting of a short film at the end of the year by a student of the FEMIS (film school) Cinema is a job for some, a dream for others. In front of the camera, behind the scenes, the actors, directors and producers, the technicians work to put into images a moment of life, an adventure, a love story... The spectator will live these moments by proxy in the dark rooms or in his living room. This year 2020, these dream-makers are at a standstill, this painting is a tribute to these men and women we don't talk about: the technicians, the make-up artists, the decorators, the editors, ...

Without them, without artists, the world turns grey. They move us, question us, surprise us or sometimes shock us. But they are there to express feelings that spectators, art lovers and other collectors feel without being able to put them down on paper, canvas or film. This painting is a rare among recent paintings to show characters, but here they are at the heart of the story.

These are the people I want to honour. The dream is in the decor: these bubbles of light on the walls, these bubbles of life and colour that represent the dream that comes from the cinema. These walls are covered with very colourful flat tints in several successive layers, the characters are more realistic made of small touches of colour, shadow and light. The painting is protected by a glossy acrylic varnish, and a black ribbon on the sides: ready to hang on the wall, no need for framing.

Valérie Le Meur

gif sur yvette (91), France

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....
