"Fascinated by paper since childhood, I have never stopped exploring it in all its facets. Today, I draw with a surgical scalpel that allows me to show my patterns in the thickness of the sheet. Patiently, I exhale slowly by pushing the blade into the paper. Notch after notch, the lines give rise to a drawing created by freehand without a preparatory sketch.

Draw to meditate and offer you my Whispers as a support for your moments of relaxation. This intimate work is closely watched and invites you to play with the ambient light. Indeed, it is you, as you move around it, who will make different reading lines appear. Depending on the angle of vision, natural or grazing lighting, different works are given to read!

Inspired by the changing ballet of starlings in the sky, called Murmuring in English, I gave this name to my equally changing works..." Léa Valmain

The most humble of materials, paper, has always fascinated Léa Valmain. It sometimes bears curious names, varies in thickness, velvety, format, colour... The full and empty, the shadow and light that play with the notions of presence and absence are the other artistic interests of this artist. Using a surgical scalpel, she gently cuts the paper in its thickness, creates a movement, makes lines, curves gush out without (almost!) ever piercing the sheet. She sculpts directly, without prior drawing, just guided by the emotion of a moment. The pattern that appears then is not fixed.

Gently approach to make the light dance and create moving shadows... Take a small step aside and everything changes... Then another and another. At every glance, a new work! While admiring in the Toulouse sky, the ballet of starlings who also create changing paintings in a few moments, she wanted to give the name "Murmurations" to these engraved papers.
