Galerie Nathalie Obadia, Valérie Belin

A highlight of Paris Photo this year is seeing one of Valérie Belin's 8 image series "Painted Ladies". This breathtaking work of art is a testament to the artists sages. Here, the models' faces are just supports, reduced to nothing more than a surface.The woman's gaze is gone and her posture is neutral, as though trained on her own inner life. Only the paint, which is put on the model, its passive recipient, externalizes the expression. Each portrait has its own own artistic style, which varies from model to model. It's set against a digital background that echoes the face's graphical motif.
