Ce tableau est inspiré d’une photographie de Jean-Léo Dugast. Elle a servi d’illustration pour la première de couverture de l’édition française du roman « Naufrages » de Akira Yoshimura, titré « Hasen » en japonais (破船), et paru chez Actes Sud. Sur cette toile, les montagnes en arrière-plan arborent une texture absente de la photographie d’origine, tout en prenant une teinte délicatement mauve qui rappelle cette couleur profonde tant louangée par Sōseki et Tanizaki, et qui est celle du yōkan, fameuse pâtisserie japonaise à base de pâte de haricot rouge et d’agar-agar. Peut-être que cette teinte violette vous rappellera aussi les monts de Kyotô couleur de flan d’azuki, tels qu’ils sont évoqués dans ce film de Yasujirō Ozu, « Les Sœurs Munakata ». Les jonques apparaissant en ombres chinoises sont des incrustations de papier japonais teinté à l’encre de Chine. Plusieurs couches de glacis sont utilisées pour rendre les reflets de l’eau sous le soleil couchant.

Acrylique sur toile de lin montée sur châssis, prête à accrocher. Côtés peints en noir. Toile vernie.

This painting is inspired by a photograph by Jean-Léo Dugast. It served as an illustration for the front cover of the French edition of Akira Yoshimura's novel "Naufrages", titled "Hasen" in Japanese (破船), and published by Actes Sud. On this canvas, the mountains in the background display a texture absent from the original photograph, while taking on a delicately mauve hue that recalls this deep color so praised by Sōseki and Tanizaki, and which is that of yōkan, a famous Japanese pastry made from red bean paste and agar-agar. Perhaps this purple hue will also remind you of the azuki-flan-colored Kyotô mountains, as they are evoked in this film by Yasujirō Ozu, "The Munakata Sisters". The junks appearing in Chinese shadows are inlays of Japanese paper dyed with India ink. Several layers of glaze are used to render the water reflections under the setting sun.

Original hand-made painting created with acrylic paints on high-quality streched linen canvas ready to hang. Edges are painted in black.

David Vall was born in France in 1978. Even though graphite pencil drawing, Chinese ink painting and Japanese calligraphy were early artistic interests to him, he turned towards higher education in science and became a researcher in behavioural neurosciences. Two years spent in British Columbia led him to discover natural scenery and lights of deep emotional intensity that awakened interest in the use of colours for his painting. His sources of inspiration are multiple: a piece of art he admired, the remembrance of scenery he contemplated, an emotion or a state of mind that holds on to his soul and wishes to take shape. Many of his artworks are also inspired by natural elements.

“We are dealing with artworks that start from reality observation – colors and textures are the proof – but there seems to be even more: an obvious emotional implication turning into a chaotic element that gives an extra dimension to the compositions. The colors are natural but become material and the contrasts are inevitably accentuated, the textures are those of the bark, the water or the soil, or even simply the sight of a landscape obscured by the mist. Despite the particular character of these works, we find a dynamism very engaging as well by their compositional development as by the chromatic contrasts, and even when these are absent, the textured materials compensate this lack. David Vall's landscapes revolve around the artist's sensitivity, establishing a privileged relationship between the viewer, the work and the author, in which the existence of such an intoxicating emotional dimension becomes the reason to give life to the works but also to enjoy them during a moment of relaxed contemplation.”
Marcello Cazzaniga, art critique and curator (translated from Italian).
