Valérie Favre began her artistic career in theatre and film, in Paris in the 1980s. The paintings gathered here assess her most recent explorations. Her canvases are heavily worked figurations, whose protagonists are rendered in murky, sketchy strokes that impart sensations of sensuality and wear simultaneously; other works are closer to abstraction, foggy with rose-like whirls of twisting paint.

The fabulous creatures, forests and nightly cityscapes of Valérie Favre's canvases open our eyes to fantastic worlds and fairytale scenarios. Favre has worked as a stage designer, theater and cinema actress, and painter, and juggles between the genres of drama, video, sketch, animation and painting. In addition to essays that explicate her multimedia productivity, the book contains an autobiographically-colored text by the artist herself that allows a look into her stream of consciousness.
