About the work :

Danakil is an artwork by French contemporary artist Frédérique Domergue.

This abstract work by the artist appears to show a torrent of lava under an inky sky. The title suggests that it is a representation of Danakil, a desert in the Horn of Africa. In the lower part of the painting, the red-orange tones of the material’s relief create a powerful contrast with the smooth and dark surface in the upper half.

Frédérique Domergue finds her inspiration in nature and at the sea-side. Her paintings evoke landscapes, skies and seas that are sometimes calm and tranquil, sometimes dark and turbulent. This abstract work is of a stream of lava. In the lower part the relief in tones of red and orange greatly contrast with the smooth upper part. 

Frédérique Domergue uses thin sheets of metal applied on aluminum panels. Through a patient process of polishing and oxidation the artist manages to confer a warmth and sensuality which tempts the observer to caress the oxidized surface of her paintings, now become all radiant and silky.

This work is signed and is sold unframed.
