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.
Whites is part of a body of work where the artist explores the notion of whiteness.
White is pure light (and conversely); It is the optical combination of all colours; But if you combine all the pigments colours, you will get a grey-beige, never a pure white. White is someting else.
In his explorations, Auville works with white cements, a deeply matte (and very white) material.
In this work, stripes made of two different types of cements (one more crunchy than the other) have been painted with white acrylic. Rough edges, and steel rods buried into the panel, give it an very industrial feel.
