Valerie Depadova

Née en 1965, vit et travaille dans le Gard. Personnages inachevés ou animaux en mutation, le quotidien prend une forme magique sous ces regards étranges qui nous interpellent dans notre plus profonde simplicité comme un retour à l’enfance, un retour vers le geste primitif et plus loin encore vers le vide. La peinture de Valérie Depadova semble nous rappeler que la chaleur peut être au cœur de l’hiver. La couleur est là comme un baume à la tristesse, étrangère au cœur de ces personnages, pris en flagrant délit dans le détail d’une expression quotidienne, naïve simple, mais perplexe. Sa terre natale, le continent africain, semble lui avoir légué la richesse d’une palette aux couleurs chatoyantes, un trait franc et spontané.
