The journey of knowledge
Fady learned the fundamentals of painting at the croqueurs de vie workshop in Charenton le Pont run by Isabelle Forestier, a painter from the fine arts workshops of Paris. During these four years of training, she learned to define shapes, to master and connect lines in space, to play with textures and impastos which allow depth. She also retained from this teaching a primordial notion which now guides her throughout her journey: the introduction of each new color and the variety of possible tones plays an essential role in the perception of the work.
In order to perfect her knowledge, in 2018 she took courses in the history of art and civilizations at the École du Louvre. This course responds to his curiosity to learn the chronological references of art history and to understand modern and contemporary influences. Fady now knows that his work is located within abstract art and belongs more particularly to lyrical abstraction.
The exploration of abstraction and color
Fady's works are characterized by a mixed technique. Acrylic paint, prism, Moon, stained glass, resin on canvas and wood are worked using brushes, knives, spatulas, sponge and cellophane.
Abstract painting is for her an essential means of sharing and communication. A vital need for reconstruction, light, reconciliation with life. Fady particularly admires the work of Chu The Chun, Zao Wou-Ki and Jackson Polloc.
The colors resonate within her and infuse her with cheerfulness, energy, balance, harmony, serenity and sometimes sadness. According to her, a perfectly finished work is a work with a soul, a spiritual depth, a world where dreams and intuitions come together to invite the viewer to give free rein to their feelings.
Fady Ferhi is an accomplished colorist. Made in depth and movement,
his work is a journey towards Eternity (link with the article on the blog http://canolinecritiks.blogspot.com/2016/04/fady-ferhi-voyage-vers-leternite.html)
Beyond time, between stasis and disappearance, the narrative logic of each of his paintings remains in suspense like an enigmatic journey that everyone is free to explore.
His moving, living work creates an embodied atmospheric dimension that transports you to unexplored territories. It is an invitation to discover possibilities, to see again in a new dimension, between the known and the dreamed, where reality is multiple, in metamorphosis, suspended in a potential balance.
