Val’s main offering to the world right now is her paintings and drawings in which she wants to convey something of what it is to be human. When you look closely you will see many many “mistakes” and imperfections in the work through the gesture of the body; “hits” and “misses”. She accepts that a piece is finished when she recognizes something that is “true”: a balance between something that’s recognizable and beautiful, and a kind of awkwardness or incompleteness that have their own beauty. Like life.
Lucca and Rebecca explore Val’s evolution as an artist, learning what catalysts have shaped her work and view on life and art.
