About this Artwork
Auville works with construction cement. Applying techniques used in the construction and ship building industries, he spreads the cement over Ursalite (high-density foam panels), creating pieces ranging in size from one to eight square meters.
Deep Horizon is made of two panels of pigmented cement separated by an orange spray line. The surface has been carved during the drying process, then polished and slightly varnished.
