"The artworks of Sati Zech are unique amalgams of historically ritualistic mark making and 21st century self-expression. They emanate feelings of femaleness: her power and passion, her cycles and repetitions."

Is it the colour?
red .... white
Or the repetition of rounded shape
Or the variety within that repetition
like natural elements - like human figures
Or the emotion expressed with the tearing up of the cloth
and the made elements
Or is it the hand-made de-skilled repairing of that cloth?
Is it because the artist has created a new square
a new human scaled rectangle
fabric that looks to be careless,
but that has taken much thought and care.
There is a feeling of safety in these pieces.
