A work that believes in an endless universe of magic and mystery
Creations carrying the value of being free
Fred Sathal works on materials and fabrics, moving them from their reality, in a plastic approach, rich of inventions, flamboyance, detachment from dogmas and all sorts of established manners, her works carry the value of being free.
She uses manipulations and procedures she invents and develops through an alchemy considered as her secret. Her achievements end up very elaborated in their details where each piece is reversible.
Her pieces of art have a familiar and strange feeling at the same time… devoured, crushed, woven, colored, embroidered, tattooed, stamped, tied, lacerated. She draws her inspiration from accidents, randomness, desire to develop and push the result towards an infinity of perceptions and intuitions.
She elaborates her spontaneous designs and transforms almost nothing into an obsession of a meticulous expert. The plan of her vision draws itself as it happens… a long process of gestation and production where time escapes her. She likes to disrupt senses by offering astonishing textures, where the link between the eye and the tactile sensation creates a surprise.
She creates without theorizing, just a bubbling, an emulation. The piece imposes itself, talks about her obsessions, her human and supernatural journey. She falls within interdisciplinary, an effervescent climate. All forms of expression are ways to deepen, offer what she wishes to pass on emotionally…
