Numériser 1


Borned in Paris in 1958, Valérie de Laubrière discovered art of lacquer in 1979, when she entered to Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des métiers d’Art (Paris 15e), in Paul Cressent’s studio. In 1981 she entered the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris and chose the figurative work of A. Zavarro and P. Alechinski. Then she evolved towards a more abstract work. After graduating and travelling, she left Paris to live next to Quimper.

She draws her inspiration from observing Nature, and models are diluting into an informal and abstract work. She uses different materials, mineral pigments, copper, silver which complement and balance each other breathing a mystic atmosphere. More than a coloured surface the canvas becomes an area of matter’s research with a particular technic, she puts mineral powders directly with her fingers without tools. Unity between concept and material drive her work by a real physic involvement.

From 1987 to 2015 Valérie showed her work of art through personal and group exhibitions, across different cities and countries like Concarneau, Plomelin, Rennes, Strasbourg, Paris, Belgium and Ireland.
