Laurence de Valmy repaints art history, combining physical and digital mediums, to bring a new light on famous artworks and artists and make the viewers ponder on our current society including the notion of fame, the place of women or the role of social media. 

Inspired by the personal stories of artists, she plays with the notion of time to create anachronic paintings and videos based on the aesthetics of Instagram and TikTok. 

In her POST paintings, she combines iconic artworks skillfully appropriated with imagined conversations on Instagram, historically accurate yet humorous. The TikTok Timeless are short videos, available as NFTs, sharing a moment in time in the life of these artists. By telling the stories behind these artworks, the artist leads us to consider them with a new eye and ponder on the central place of social media for artists.

Her most recent NFT collection titled MOST FAMOUS VISUAL ARTISTS is a collection of 54 digital illustrations featuring 54 women artists from different centuries and continents, each represented by a flower, a traditional symbol of femininity in art.

Art is a continuum and artists are all connected either through times or during their lifetime. They do what they do, because of who they are and  thanks to the artists they are inspired by.

My goals are to share about the stories behind the artworks, the connections between the artists and to make my viewers consider these iconic artworks with a renewed interest by replacing them in the context of their creation.

It also takes place in a reflection about the importance of social media for artists nowadays, the fact that art is often seen through a screen and the relativity of fame at one moment in time. By appropriating the artworks, I pay a tribute to their authors and play with the concept of originality.
