September 26 - October 17, 2017
Reception: Thursday, September 28, 2017, 6-8 PM
The work of French artist Frédérique Négrié, who goes by the name “Fredneg”, combines graphic design, painting, music, and performance to provide a one-of-a-kind experience centered around a theme. Driven by an artistic spirit and the need to create, Fredneg challenges the boundaries of our understanding of what art is by fusing numerous styles and types of art together. From music to painting to sculpture and photography, the result of her experimentation is a unique collection of richly colored and textured digital paintings that capture scenes of both nature and urban environments reminiscent of the work of the French Impressionists. In Fredneg's hands, places are transformed into a symphony of light and form, and viewers are transported to another world.
Fredneg's artistic roots lie in the study of musical theory and classical piano, which she started learning at the age of six. Since 2010, she has concentrated on designing multimedia installations focused on artistic and cultural transitions and mediations.
