Yvonne Domenge
Coral macquette for the project Coquino Coral, Canary Wharf 2015


Yvonne Domenge (born 1946), makes work that is defined by its abstract and organic nature, often monumental in scale. She expresses herself through two kinds of production: one focusing on pieces for interior, intimate display, the other on large-scale sculptural interventions for public spaces. She invites the spectator to view her work from within, to be drawn into her subject-matter, which reflects the relationship between man and the natural world. In One Canada Square her bronze sculpture Flower 2015 has a lustrous finish, evoking the beauty of nature. In the public realm of the Canary Wharf estate passers-by on Bank Street can view her 2-meter diameter Coral Coquino 2015, which evokes a marine scene. Through this work Domenge beckons the viewer to step back from the commotion of everyday life and to devote some time to being attentive, examining life in detail. She expresses her work ethic: ‘I constantly use space to seek my identity.’

Yvonne Domenge was born in Mexico City in 1946, and studied fine art in Mexico City, Montreal and Washington DC. She has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Mexico and world-wide and her work is found in many public collections. She has long been a member of Mexico’s Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y Las Artes programme that supports young sculptors, and throughout her career she has been involved in social projects aimed at enhancing the human and artistic grown of her country.

In 2013 the governments of Mexico and the United Kingdom decided to celebrate the ‘Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom’ and the ‘Year of the United Kingdom in Mexico’ in 2015 to promote better understanding between their societies. The initiative to hold this Dual Year came out of high-level bilateral discussions and initially it was to be a predominantly cultural project. Subsequently the Ministries of Foreign Affairs of both countries decided to expand the scope of the Dual Year to other areas, including trade, investment, tourism, education, science and innovation. On 11 June 2014 the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, Jose Antonio Kuribrena Meade and the then Foreign Secretary of the UK, William Hague, signed a Joint Declaration in London for the designation of 2015 as the Year of Mexico in the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom in Mexico.
