Tom Fabritius

Works on Paper


Fabritius pictorial worlds exist thanks to television consumption; by being present in front of the screen, by - as they say- hangin' in front of the tube, images wash over you casually, soothed, half-concentrated. The camera then lends this way of perception a hand. Some of these photos find their way into the realm of autonomy and Fabritius captures them in large format watercolors.
