Acrylic on cotton canvas mounted on a frame, ready to hang. Sides painted in black. Varnished canvas, signed on the back and delivered with a certificate of authenticity of the artist. This painting is a personal interpretation of a sacred legend (Jukurrpa) that takes up the codes of pointillism in Aboriginal art. The creative god, Jindoo (the sun), sends two spirit-men, the Woddee Gooth-tha-rra, from the end of the Milky Way to the Earth Yulbrada to create hills, valleys, lakes and oceans. Once their work is finished, Jindoo sends the Seven Sisters, each star of the Milky Way, to beautify the Earth with flowers, trees and animals.

While the sisters are busy creating honey ants, they are thirsty and the younger sister is sent to fetch water. The two spirit men hiding nearby followed her and introduced themselves to her. The younger sister does not return to her sisters, who then go in search of her. They found her with the two spirit men and the younger sister told them that she had fallen in love with these men. Jindoo warned the sisters that if such a thing were to happen, the person who fell in love would not be able to return to the Milky Way. As a result, the other six sisters left for the Milky Way and the younger sister stayed on Earth with the spirit-men.

The special powers of spirit men are taken from them and they become the first mortals. These mortals create the rules by which Men must live, and their union with the younger sister gives birth to the first Aboriginal people. The Wong-gu-tha believe that all the people of their people are descendants of the two spirit men and the younger sister, and that is why the stars play a central role in their cultural beliefs.

David Vall was born in France in 1978. Although interested in graphite pencil drawing, Indian ink painting and Japanese calligraphy from very early on, he turned to scientific studies and became a researcher in behavioural neuroscience. He spent two years in British Columbia and discovered landscapes and lights of a rare emotional intensity that awakened him to the use of colour in his painting.

His sources of inspiration are multiple: an admired work of art, the memory of a contemplated landscape, an emotion or a state of mind that clings to the soul and wishes to take shape. Many of his paintings are also inspired by natural elements.

Marcello Cazzaniga, an art critic and curator comments on David Vall's work:

"We are dealing with works that start from the observation of reality - colours and textures are proof of this - but there seems to be even more: an obvious emotional involvement that transforms into a chaotic element that gives an extra dimension to the compositions. The colours are natural but become material and the contrasts are inevitably accentuated, the textures are those of the bark, water or soil, or even simply the view of a landscape obscured by mist. Despite the particular character of these works, we find a very engaging dynamism both in their compositional development and in the chromatic contrasts, and even when these are absent, textured materials compensate for this lack. David Vall’s landscapes are articulated around the artist’s sensitivity, establishing a privileged relationship between the spectator, the work and the author, in which the existence of an emotional dimension as beautiful as it is exhilarating becomes the reason to give life to the works but also to enjoy them during a moment of relaxed contemplation."
