We love the fluid and amorphous design of this 2006 ‘Domino’ mirror (Edition Avant-Scene) by Hubert Le Gall (b. 1961) in Artcurial’s 25 June sale. It is made of brass and gold leaf (h:153cm w:90cm d:2cm).
Entirely self-taught, Le Gall’s influences lie in the work of Dali, Max Ernst and Giacometti. The elongated overlapping panels of this mirror and the play of form and reflected light are both poetic and playful, blurring the lines between form and function. The decorative quality draws on the excesses of the Baroque period while firmly placing it in the 21st century with its smooth unevenly shaped forms reminiscent of those in the paintings of Gustav Klimt. (‘Hope’, 1907-1908 MOMA).
Lot 271. Estimate: €12,000-15,000. Sold: €15,588.
