Valérie Jolly

Paper Sculptor

Valérie graduated from Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London. She won in 2008 the Sculpture Award from the Royal British Society of Sculptors.

Her work centers mostly on tissue paper, white glue and water as main materials with which she creates imprints of objects — geometric shapes or architectural spaces — that she peels off like a shed skin, or like an echo of reality.

Valérie is interested by the phenomenology of perception, by the concept of a residual mark and its evocative powers, by memory and by phenomena of absence, dream and transience.
