Since 1998, Dominique Vial has been turning her thoughts into works of art. Now, for her latest collaboration with Daum, the French sculptor has decided to give a new interpretation to her art, taking her inspiration from Greek mythology, with two pieces entitled «Alcyone” & “Ceyx». Legend has it that Alcyone and Ceyx were such a happy couple that they were foolish enough to compare their flamboyant love and extreme happiness with that of Zeus, king of the gods and master of the universe, and his wife Hera. To punish them for their insolence, they metamorphosed them into ordinary birds. Male or female, the curves of these bodies express the intention of the subject, and thanks to a play of color and transparency, the artist supports certain shapes that give her sculptures real character.
“The illustration of these lovers is praised by two sculptures created by sculptural artist Dominique Vial. Thanks to the transparency of pa?te de verre, Alcyone and Ceyx will bring to life the winds and passions of which they are the guarantors, but invisible to our eyes… We can then make up for this visual renaissance by sliding our gaze from one wing to the other, guided by the material and the magic of their love.» D. VIAL
