Valerie Carmet is a French-American mixed media, Pop Art, Assemblage artist based between Miami and NYC. She has been exhibiting in major art fairs all over the world for the past 15 years. She had many publications and TV appearances and has been collected by public corporations and private collectors. Today, she is represented by several galleries in the States and Europe.
In her inspirational Pop Art collection, The ToyBox Collection : Not intended for small children”, Valerie describes her approach by saying, “My children’s toys, too sweet and memorable to lose, were gathering dust in a box. I began this series to reflect on my own childhood and realized the importance “play” had in our lives, the psychological effect it had and continues to have on us as adults.
I started to “play” with toys in my art and created an outlet for me to discuss controversial issues and express my take on uneasy subjects such as gun violence, war, gender equality, LGTBQIA rights, marriage, mental health, sex….
I hope with my art I can touch my audience in a playful way. I want to give someone of any age, race, gender and background the desire to play again and reflect back on those childhood feelings where emotions were still raw and unstained. I hope they can see the world again with a nonjudgmental spirit, mind, and eyes and then wonder how many things went wrong on so many levels but still feel joyful that the world can be a more inclusive place for everyone.
