Virginie Rasmont (B.1991, Paris) is a profound lover of colour, a passion inherited from her uncle and mother, both painters. Virginie specialises in paper collage. She began creating art as a therapeutic tool, then decided to share her artwork to help others ease their minds and nourish their souls.

Virginie describes her art as, "spiritual art," as it is a way to express her thoughts about humanity and society. Her work is a philosophical reflection on universal and timeless themes such as femininity, the relationship to the body and to intimacy, alterity, love, and joy, to name a few. She holds up a mirror to our hectic lives, showing our shadows and rays of light. She crystalizes moments and captures the world's vibrations, enlightening our hearts and souls. She invites us to take a step back from our lives and to question our point of view.

Although her themes are deep, her working process is quite intuitive and guided by her emotions. This duality reflects her personality as she is a profoundly rational yet empathetic person, in touch with her feelings. Art offers her a world of endless possibilities, a dream world where emotion can freely take power over reason.

Virginie’s collage work consists of cutting and assembling paper of different shapes and colours. Among many influences, three artists in particular have truly inspired her: Niki de Saint Phalle, Matisse and Picasso.

Coming from a scientific background, Virginie has always loved to dissect, deconstruct and analyse things under the microscope. She not only experiments with fragmentation, but also recomposes scenes, portraits, and everyday life 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, “color has no meaning for one's intellect, but has all power over one's sensibilities” (Delacroix).

Harmony and poetry are the guiding principles of her work.
