The artist Jeremy Laval was born in 1990, in Paris. Art lover since he was a kid, at 16 he started to express himself through painting. Afterwards, he went on with his passion, attending an Art school. Unfortunately, his parents talked him out of pursuing an artistic career, therefore, he leaned towards a scientific one. This is how he ended up being an optician during 10 years. However, he never stopped to create artworks, going from painting to sculpting. Nevertheless, Jeremy’s optician career grew on him as he associates in his art optic effect and illusions in a kinetic approach of his sculptures, using mirror effects. After a long journey in South America, he decided to devote himself to his art.
Beyond its imperfections and sharpness, glass is a pure a noble material for Jeremy Laval that let us enter into his world through singular creations. Curved inwards, the mirror frames our reflexion as a part of the art experience. It’s a sort of mise en abyss of ourselves as we stand in front of the artwork. We see our deformed reflexion through an eye that is creator and spectator at the same time. He now works exclusively with Marciano Galleries.
