VIRGINIE R.

Virginie Rasmont (B.1991, Paris) is a profound lover of colour, a passion transmitted by her uncle and mother, both painters. Virginie specialises in paper collage. She originally began creating art therapeutically, then dared to share her artwork to help others ease their minds and nourish their souls. 

By playing with colours and shapes, Virginie reveals our emotions and sensitivities.
By telling stories, she intends to share universal values that touch people's hearts: joy, femininity, childhood, family, love.

Through her portraits, she wants to hold up a mirror to our hectic lives. 

Virginie is is a colour-lover, storyteller and portrait maker with her own unique visual universe.

ART STATMENT

Virginie Rasmont uses art as a way to express her thoughts about humanity and society.

 

Her work is a philosophical reflection on themes and values that are universal and timeless such as joy, femininity, childhood, family and love. She holds up a mirror to our hectic lives, shows our shadows and rays of light, and crystalizes moments or vibrations. She invites us to take a step aside from our lives and question our point of view.

Although her themes are deep, her working process is quite intuitive and genuinely guided by her emotions. This duality reflects her personality as she is a profoundly rational and empathetic person, in touch with her feelings.
 
Virginie is an artist whose work involves cutting, the assembly of shapes and colours, and collage. Among several influences, three artists in particular have truly inspired her: Niki de Saint Phalle, Picasso, and Matisse.

Virginie has always loved to dissect, deconstruct and analyse things under the microscope, a remainder of her scientific background. She does not only experiment with fragmentation but also recomposes scenes, portraits, and day-to-day situations. She likes to take her telescope to step back on our existence and invites us to do the same. She plays with colours as a language of her emotions. For her, “colour has no meaning for the intelligence but has all the power over the sensibility” (Delacroix).
 
In all her creations, she is seeking the same goal: harmony and poetry.
