COSTUME & BODY PAINT:
Born 1958 USA, Fred Hatt is an artist working in figurative drawing and painting, experimental video and photography, body art, and performance, exploring light, movement, energy, and the emergence of beauty from chaos. My work is an art of movement and feeling. For me what is important is not conceptual or iconographic content, but process and practice. Drawing from life is the core practice for a multi-media career that crosses the boundaries between performance and visual arts, between traditional craft and contemporary technologies.Whether making a drawing, a video piece, a photograph or a performance, the focus is on the perception of energy and its expression through light and form, movement and gesture.
I am self-taught as an artist and have been exhibiting, presenting performances and multimedia events, and collaborating with other artists for twenty years. ,
