Valérie Favres paintings open up fresh narratives and conceptual perspectives, moving between figuration and abstraction.
Her works are dominated by a fictional world made up of contrasts, contradictions, resistance and restlessness.
She works in an openly experimental manner, using a repertory informed by art history. Her demands of the medium are extensive; she is always engaged in a radical interrogation both painting and artistic work processes. Favre paints scenes developed over the course of several years in large series and work cycles. The exhibition “Intérieurs” traces some of these series back to their beginnings and shows an early group of works, painted when Favre first moved to Berlin, between 2000 and 2001. Many of her later motifs and compositions can be already found in the large scale paintings.Read more
