The title of the show is also the title of one of Fattal's most recent paintings and could represent the evolution of the artist. The exhibition shows two main body of works from two periods ranging along 10 years. The early, iconic, tryptical, soul-drenched works, screamed-out its romantic fin de siècle spleen.
Always obsessed with the theme of self-identity, Fattal considers his paintings as self-portraits that evolved from figurative mixed media collages, made of words and images, to more abstract patterns and synthetic flowers, inspired by his trips to India. Oversized pages torn-out of a travel notebook.
His message is now more mature, more subtle, self-effacing. Despite their happy pop esthetic, the paintings reflect a deep melancholy that can be read throughout.
In the end it is only a matter of Light and Colours.
