Artist in the depths of herself Val Carr-Ortolan, born in Gabon in 1965, started with painting, her first love, to finally reveal herself through sculpture more than 20 years ago.
It is in 2005 that we discover for the first time her work. A very marked artistic identity in which power, strength and softness intermingle inviting the hand to touch, feel, perceive the intention of the artist.
Val makes us rediscover sculpture through her favorite material, paper. Works of art that are delicate and imposing at the same time, with soft and sober patinas that fully restore the artist's intention.
Val Carr-Ortolan works on two themes of predilection : man and animal, separately or constituting the inseparable duo of the story she tells us.
In 2013, Val Carr-Ortolan obtained the second special mention of the jury at the 11th International Biennial of Sculpture in Rambouillet, in 2016, the second prize for sculpture and the Univers des Arts prize at the International Academy of Arts in Paris.
In 2017, she wins the artists' prize and the public's prize at the Carrara Trophy held at the Saint-Lô National Stud Farm.

The gallery’s words

I discovered Val's work at an art fair, where she presented some of her most captivating works. A marvel, a treasure, the hand involuntarily slips on the work, the touch becomes extraordinary and  the sensuality of the work and the material reveals itself as a matter of course. I acquired one of her works to offer it to someone very dear to me, the magic of the work worked, the emotion spoke, a moment I will never forget. The encounter with the artist was just as natural and we decided to work together.
