Warrior Image


Simone Fattal’s practice has always been informed by war and its historical contexts. The ancient material of clay that is both fragile and strong, breakable even as it may last forever, allows Fattal to trace the past into the present. She doesn’t differentiate between the figure of a contemporary warrior and an Enkidu who lived and fought in 3000 B.C. She situates herself along this continuum linking images, histories and their consequences that she feels are all present in her psyche and by extension, in her work.
