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

L’œuvre intitulée « Territoires » peut se lire comme une mappemonde. Sur un fond obscur bleu et rouge, par endroits iridescent, qui rappelle autant l’espace intersidéral qu’une étendue océanique, émergent des formes aux contours morcelés semblables à des continents. Ces territoires à la couleur changeante, passant du vert au jaune et à l’orange, apparaissent craquelés et vitrifiés, comme rendus stériles par un soleil brûlant. A moins que ces craquelures ne soient qu’une multitude de canaux par lesquels l’eau circule…

Original hand-made painting created with acrylic paints on high-quality streched linen canvas ready to hang. Crackling effects. 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 « Territoires » can be seen as a world map. On a dark blue and red background, sometimes iridescent, reminding the outer space as much as an oceanic area, emerge some broken up shapes that are similar to continents. These territories with changing colours, from green to yellow and orange, appear crackled and vitrified as if they were made sterile by a blazing sun. Unless these cracks are just a multitude of channels where water circulate…

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).
