New Life, New Home, New Studio

The last couple of years have been a little bit hectic. My husband and I moved to Europe. We didn't have much of a plan, at first, just the desire of a new adventure. We're now settled in lovely Normandy (Camembert, anyone?). To be honest, for a while, I spent more time painting the walls of our new house than new canvases. This is now over and I am back in the studio full time. So stay tuned: there will be lots of new pictures and series coming up soon!

"The Avant-Garde Ideal"

by Andrew McGinn

... "Veronique Le Merre makes choices that are meant to beautify criticism, particularly in the use of opulent, saturate color and coherent, figurative representation."

... "Le Merre turns escapism, long the pejorative title given to bourgeois works that lack relevance and utility, on its head. The inviting and super-saturate images project naiveté while the content is anything but innocent. To escape into Little Red Riding Hood’s world is an irony because everything about the character herself has more depth and reality in relation to vital urges than popular discourse about Little Red Riding Hood, or pubescent children, allows. There is an escape to reality, and that is the radical enchantment of Le Merre’s paintings. The palatable use of elements effects a harmonious relationship between the art and the audience, while the content effects a disunity with popular culture, and a laugh."
