ARTE CASE / Friday Finds !/ April 2015
Galerie Patrick Fourteen hosted the vernissage of the first collection by Antoine Vignault last evening. This six piece collection is one we have been following for some time and it was a wonderful experience to see the pieces in person.
The quality of the craftsmanship is enchanting it’s own. Yet this is just the tip of the iceberg. This table is a nod to Royère who incorporated straw marquetry and stars in his work. Antoine’s 5 pointed ‘pentagram’ star (rather than the decoratively symmetrical 6 pointed star employed by Royère) is employed with the knowledge that it is a symbol recognized by man through centuries dating back to the Egyptians, with fascinating associations to the Golden Ratio. With full understanding and enthusiasm of these theories Antoine seeks to touch an eternal chord within us humans through his work.
For the full story on these pieces we encourage you to contact Galerie Patrick Fourtin.
