Artist list

Fabrice Schaefer
The recurrent theme in my work is metal; I like challenging it and especially appreciate the responsiveness of iron, titanium and gold.
For this exhibition I have used pure titanium essentially, which is extremely hard and light and has the particularity of reflecting certain colors. It is used mainly in aeronautics, medical equipment and the military industry where its stability, sterility and hardness are of the utmost importance.

The rough, serious impression titanium gives has prompted me to transform it with motifs from the popular arts such as scattered flowers and gentians found in porcelain and wood painting.
Traditional decorations such as these, either engraved or inlaid, can transform high-tech material with the naïve reminder of a dream world.
