Born in 1964 - France
Could artistic expression be considered as Valerie’s ‘raison d’être?... As far back as Valerie can remember, artistic expression has always been a part of her universe and has had a lot to do with the person she has become.
“My first contact with sculpture draws on the scars of suffering, the rejection of a bruised body; my work is somewhat autobiographical. Women with frail bodies but heavy legs…my period of reconstruction. For over ten years I have been modeling women’s bodies. Nowadays I’m looking for lightness, gaiety… I push the model to the extreme, manipulating the body, twisting it, leading it towards its ultimate limit. I abstract the unnecessary details and concentrate on the emotion. The technique has evolved. Clay has given way to coloured resin and the piece is worked to create slender lines. I try to make my approach contemporary and modern.”
