Valerie stands out as an exceptional thinker and collaborator. We had the pleasure of working together as she wrote a text for an exhibition catalogue, and I was struck by her open-mindedness and energy to examine the artist’s work through multiple perspectives, an approach that she welcomed editors and readers bring to her own work as well. I feel lucky to have had the chance to work with and learn from her.

Valerie’s acute knowledge and ability to analyze and interpret the works of contemporary artists in the context of their respective social, cultural and historical realities serves as a foundation of her writing. As a true catalyst, her writing combines human feelings and a clear and precise articulation of thoughts to trigger her reader’s mind. I have been often moved and inspired by Valerie’s words and will look forward to continue reading her in the future.
