Could artistic expression be considered as Valerie's "raison d'être" ? As far back as Valerie Marty 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 frail body but heavy legs...my period of reconstruction. For over ten years I have been modeling women's bodies. Nowadays I'm looking for ligntness, gaiety...I push the model to the extreme, manipulating the body, twisting it, leading it towards its ultimate limit. I abstract the unnecesary 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.

The gallery's words

I knew the work of Valérie Marty has I had already discovered it at art fairs and at a colleague and friend's art gallery in Bordeaux. At the closing of his gallery, he was kind enough to put us in touch with what lead to a new collaboration. Valérie Marty joined the artists of the gallery at the end of 2016 and brought a note of cheerfulness with her colored and curvy birdys. I discovered an artist of great sensitivity, creativity and perfectionism. We agreed quickly and it is with great pleasure that we continue our collaboration.
