Acrylique au couteau sur toile de coton montée sur châssis, prête à accrocher. Effets de texture au sable. Côtés peints en noir.
Toile vernie, signée au dos et livrée avec un certificat d'authenticité de l'artiste.

L’œuvre intitulée « Héphaïstos » évoque la fournaise du dieu éponyme. Le noir domine pour représenter les entrailles de la terre tandis que des brasiers incandescents s’allument en divers endroits de la toile, orangés au plus chaud des flammes, rougeoyants sur les pourtours. Des reflets cuivrés y rappellent le métal en fusion tandis que le sable mêlé aux pigments évoque la pierre fondue. Une impression de chaleur intense émane de la toile qui se veut une ode au feu.

Original hand-made painting created with acrylic paints and knife on high-quality streched cotton canvas ready to hang. Texture effects with sand. Edges are painted in black.
The painting is coated with a high-gloss varnish, signed on the back and delivered with a certificate of authenticity from the artist.

The painting entitled « Hephaistos » evokes the furnace of the eponymous god. Black dominates to represent the earth’s depths while incandescent blazes illuminate different parts of the painting, orangey at the hottest of the flames, reddening on the edges. Copper sparkles remind the molten metal while sand mixed with pigments evokes melted rock. A feeling of intense heat emanates from the painting which aims to be an ode to fire.

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).
