Fredrikson stallard’s work often exudes an energy like that of abstract expressionism, a forcing by the artists hand or a chaos within the materials and forms themselves, albeit an organized chaos. In Sereno they have used similar themes, methods and language to instead create a moment of calm and solitude. The forms themselves are created from shards of glass violently created by the artists, but they become unified in utter stillness by the inclusion of a simple flat sheet and the transformation of the group into polished stainless steel. This brings a reflection of the three unified elements in the surface, creating another of Fredrikson Stallard’s recurring themes, Rorschach like symmetrical forms. This even further delivers their nature from turmoil to serenity - they resolve themselves through the reorganization of symmetry.
