Falsche Monotypie, 2012
Oil on paper
74 x 58.5 cm (29 1/8 x 23 in.), framed

Valerie Favre's “Lapines” series shows a rabbit- woman that Valérie Favre has established as an alter ego of herself. The Lapines are decidedly not bunnies, but also not invulnerable superheroines. Favre takes on a cliché and envelopes it in a life of her own. The motif of the Lapine almost disappears in the monochromatic Monotopie series. For this work, Valérie Favre used the traditional printing technique of monotype, which is created by painting on a smooth plate and pressing it on paper subsequently.
