Artist Laurence de Valmy invites us to reflect on the links between artists through times and the relationship between Art and social media today.
Inspired by the personal stories of artists, she revisits Art History through anachronic Instagram of the past. In her POST paintings, she combines iconic artworks skillfully appropriated with imagined conversations, historically accurate yet humorous. By telling the stories behind these artworks, the artist leads us to consider them with a new eye.
Laurence de Valmy is French born and lives in Philadelphia, USA. In 2017, She was awarded an Artist Residency by the ESKFF at Mana Contemporary, NJ (USA) for her work on the POST series. Since then, her work is gaining recognition and has been shown in group exhibitions and major international art fairs with the galleries Azart (NY), Kahn (UK) and Range of Arts (FR).
In June 2018, de Valmy’s work was at the Museum of Urban and Contemporary Art (MUCA) in Munich in the exhibition The BUNTE Art, showing alongside Andy Warhol. Her work can be found in private collections including Hubert Burda Collection, Abrishamchi Family Collection and Eileen Kaminsky Foundation.
