About this Artwork
Auville works with construction cement. Applying techniques used in the construction and ship building industries, he spreads the cement over high-density foam panels, creating pieces ranging in size from one to eight square meters.
Blue Line is made of slightly eroded painting tatooed on sand-mass coloured cement.
Bright although eroded colours with raw cement show that colours can get old but still bright and moving.
