About this Artwork
Light and time fade colours.
This artwork is an attempt to keep colours bright through erosion and wheatering.
Bright although eroded colours with raw cement show that colours can get old but still bright and moving.
The bright colors that Auville sometimes incorporates into his works are generally achieved with water-based spray paint applied during the drying process or eroded spray painting.
