About Freddy Fabris

About the artwork

With each of his ‘Renaissance Series’ photographs, Fabris’ talent and technical proficiency shine through; the detail and finish of each piece is second to none. The framing for each particular print is selected by the artist himself, to reflect the ambiguity between modern and classical traditions that are expressed in his photographs. All frames are also finished with anti-reflective, conservation grade glass. Each scene is beautifully lit; highly stylised, but characteristic of Fabris’ commercial aesthetic. His use of light, the dramatic chiaroscuro, calls to mind Caravaggio; the poses and postures are overt references to the work of other historical painters he has used for inspiration, such as Rembrandt and Michelangelo. Through his camera lens, Fabris aspires to these Renaissance masters, but also endeavours to play on the complementary qualities of old and new, bringing a fresh, invigorating interpretation of these works to his Fine Art series. The viewer can see through these images the endeavour of the young Fabris to aspire to the greats, but yet also to continue in the vein of his commercial successes with a style that is recognisably his. As much as the poses and compositions of the photographs are highly reminiscent of famous paintings such as The Last Supper and The Creation of Adam, the subtle intricacies of these pieces elevate them from being a simple reimagining of a classical work. To take The Last Supper, for example, the viewer sees an old car part hanging behind the head of a Christ-like figure, to suggest a sort of halo that identifies the figure as a modern messiah; Fabris’ work engenders itself in the genealogy of a symbolic practice that is rooted in centuries of art historical tradition, giving serious weight and credence to the Renaissance Series.
