Véronique Kraemer

Born in: 1967 France
Translation in progress

I was born with a ruling desire to create. During 40 years, I followed the path of many western women: I studied, I worked, I married, I had children. I served others, I forgot myself and submitted to rules I thought immutable and part of the world order. Creation was my oxygen, it saved me from suffocating in the social stranglehold in which I was trapped.

I have always painted humankind to express my own feelings facing this strange world with a greater or lesser degree of violence, often desperately, sometimes hopefully. The meanders of life had me reborn in pain a few years ago. Now free, my status as an artist allows me to remain on the fringe of this society which I do not understand, while still interacting with and observing it. It allows me to break the mold without being ostracized for it.

One year ago, after an art therapy training, I decided to make art full time. I need now to give meaning to my art, to spread the message of humanism that I care about, a message of hope.

Most societies split humanity into two genders, favoring the masculine over the feminine. In a society which always esteemed “masculine values" (ambition, competition, selfconfidence...) more highly, it is above all important for me to redeem “feminine values" (intuition, empathy, kindness, softness...). In my opinion, it is the sum of these

complementary values (feminine and masculine), that each human possesses within, which will help build a better world, a more equal one, with less violence, injustice, rejection.

As a humanist painter, my work is an everlasting search for technical and stylistic ways to convey kindness and softness through my paintings, using textures and materials, colors and contrasts. But I am also searching for innovative ways to denounce that which shocks me in the world.

Every exhibition is for me an opportunity to discuss with visitors and to share with them my thoughts on a woman's place in society, on racism and the rejection of alterity, on the value inherent to each human life.

I am convinced that images have the power to change the world and I am trying to contribute, in my own way, to the betterment of it. It's not a lot, but it's still something.
