Art Market Hamptons, July 5-7
POST paintings, Laurence de valmy
What if Instagram had always existed? Laurence de Valmy intermingles her profound understanding of art history along with her painting dexterities to appropriate the famous works of arts and disclose their narratives, which are depicted as Instagram posts from a time gone by.
Instagram now plays an important role for visual artists and artworks are more often seen through a screen than face to face. She merged this fact with her interest in art history to share the stories behind iconic artworks. “I love art history but above all, I’m fascinated by personal stories and relationships: how artists were connected with other artists, art dealers, writers, their lovers, etc. What made them create their work? Or for whom did they do it? That’s what my series is about” says de Valmy.
To create her paintings, de Valmy spends as much time on the research than on the actual painting because all the stories, dates, connections are accurate and the dialogs are as close to the quotes as possible. All the paintings are presented with the #Story.Behind.The.Art on the website which the artist considers as part of her artwork. By telling the stories behind these artworks, de Valmy invites us to consider them with a new eye and invites us in the intimacy of these famous artists.
The exhibition will be on view from May 14 to 31 with a preview and conversation in French on May 13 in partnership with Museum Week, Le Petit Journal NY and HomeIS from 6.30 pm.
